What happens to my Microsoft 365 account when I graduate?

Since you must be a current student at OWU to qualify for our 365 subscription, you will lose access to it once you graduate. When your Office 365 for Education plan expires:

  • The Office applications enter a reduced-functionality mode, which means that you can view documents, but you cannot edit or create new ones.
  • Online services associated with the school email address, such as Office Online, will no longer work.

Microsoft provides a range of Office options for individuals, including free online applications, so it’s easy to find one to fit your budget. However, you will have to sign up for a new (free) Microsoft account with an email address other than your OWU alumni email-for-life address.
