Microsoft Office for Students

Students, educators, and university faculty are all eligible to use the special Microsoft Student versions of the latest Microsoft 2016 Office suite. These versions feature all the same great applications as other Office versions, but at a significantly reduced price and more relaxed licensing terms. 

The best option for most students is Office 365 University Edition. For a low one-time fee, students receive 4 years of access to the latest version of Microsoft Office, including all Office applications. 

For those who aren't concerned about always having the latest version of Office, choosing the Office 2016 Home & Student version might be best. It is a little more up front, but comes with a lifetime license.
