Retired Faculty and Staff Association

Microsoft Licenses for Emeritus

In March 2020, Information Technology Services (ITS) sent an email to emeritus faculty and staff about an expected change in Microsoft's license structure, resulting in emeritus no longer being able to download and use Microsoft Office desktop applications with their Cal Poly account. The change was expected to occur April 1, 2020, but Microsoft has delayed this change without giving a new date.

ITS has assured emeritus that the Office 365 suite of web-based appsincluding Word, Excel, Outlook and moreis still available to emeritus, and has provided some resources to ease the transition to Office 365 if and when the change in Microsoft's license structure occurs.
