Keyboard MS Office

Highly Recommended

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 2013 or later.

Free for Current UTC Students!

Installing on Additional Devices
