Microsoft Office 365 A1 for Students


As a current student of Lansing Community College how do I request Microsoft Office 365 A1?


Microsoft provides us with Office 365 A1 for Lansing Community College students to use on their personally owned computers. Microsoft 365 A1 is the office suite that includes a limited selection of products chosen by Microsoft accessed on the web at the Microsoft Office portal after creating an account below.


  • LCC does not provide support for the installation of software on your own device or the support of issues that may arise from any such installation OR support on the use of the software itself.
  • This software installation does not work on Tablets or ChromebooksIt requires a Microsoft Windows or Apple MAC operating system as can be found on a Desktop or Laptop computer.
  • If you have a pre-installed version of Microsoft Office which you have not activated, you should uninstall that first. For instance, many computers come with a copy pre-installed that would require you to purchase an activation key if you want to use it.
  • You may want to consider uninstalling any previous versions of Microsoft Office from your computer, even if it was already activated.
  • Be sure to keep your original installation media and license key so that you can go back to it in the future if you wish.
  • Make sure your computer operating system is fully patched.
