Most or all written assignments in the School of Nursing must be submitted in Microsoft Office format. Although it is possible to use other software (MS Works, Open Office, Apple Pages and Keynote, etc.) to create documents and then save them in MS Office format, doing so requires care and makes collaboration more difficult. We strongly recommend that all students have and use MS Office 2007 or later.
Free for Current UTC Students!
Office 365 (aka Office 2013) is now free for current students with Windows 7 or later, or Mac OS 10.6 or later for installation on up to five devices (computers, tablets, phones). This package includes the MS Word and Powerpoint students need for classes. You can register and download the installer online here:
Note: You must have Windows 7, 8 or 10 (or Mac OS) to take advantage of this offer. Office 365 is not compatible with Windows Vista. If you have an older computer with Vista, your choices are either to upgrade to Windows (typically $100-150) before installing Office 365 or purchase a new computer which will already have a newer version of Windows.
Installing on Additional Devices
Note: Because you will have an "organizational account," you may need to use a specialized organizational login such as the one above to access your account.
