Who is eligible?

Under WKU's volume licensing with Microsoft, the Microsoft Student Advantage program is available to current WKU students only.

This is a subscription program, and the subscription will end when your relationship as a student ends with the University. If you wish to continue to use Office 365 ProPlus after you have left WKU, you may purchase access through Microsoft.

The Microsoft Student Advantage Program is available only to individuals whose primary affiliation with WKU is "student." WKU faculty and staff may purchase Office software at a discount under the Microsoft Home Use Program, but are not eligible for the free version of Office under the Student Advantage Program, even if enrolled in classes.
