VERY IMPORTANT (for SCU Alumni and new graduates): Once you have graduated from Santa Clara University, Microsoft Office 365 (SCU Licensed version) will not be supported by Microsoft, Santa Clara Law Technology, and/or Santa Clara University. In order to have a fully supported copy of Microsoft Office or Office 365, you will have to purchase a subscription from Microsoft. You will need to back up your office documents first, and then uninstall ( Windows version or Mac version ) Office 365 before you purchase and install your personal copy of Office 365 and/or Microsoft Office 2016 (or later). Office 365 will start to degrade its features 30-days after your graduation date.
