Microsoft Home Use Program for Faculty/Staff

The Microsoft Home Use Program offers a 30% discount on Office 365 Home or Personal annual subscriptions. This subscription includes premium versions of the Office apps across all your devices, monthly exclusive features, updates, and 1TB of cloud storage per use. 

This Office 365 account would not be associated with your UCO account, which is a good option if you want to keep your UCO documents and information separate from your personal information.  Be aware that you will lose access to your UCO Office 365 account if you leave employment with the university. 

NOTE: As of July, 2019, Microsoft discontinued the ability to download a physical copy of Office (a perpetual license) as a part of the HUP (Home Use Program).  The license model is now subscription-only.
