Guidance for prospective students in 2020

1. First of all

※This page is intended for those who will enter the University in April 2020.

Congraturations to all prospective enrollees. We welcome you to enter Mie University.
This is a notice for those who are considering purchasing a new PC or Microsoft Office before entrance.

2. About Microsoft Office

Mie University has a Microsoft Office comprehensive license agreement.
If you are a student at the University, you can use Microsoft Office products for free (excluding media charges) while you are at the university.
Therefore, if you are a new entrant to the University and are considering purchasing a Microsoft Office product line or an Office pre-installed computer,
We recommend that you refrain from purchasing Microsoft Office products.

Microsoft Office products offerd:

The offered Office will be Office 365 ProPlus.

◆What is Office 365 ProPlus?

This is an annual contract method that uses almost the same Office as that generally sold. This right is provided to all current students.
This Office 365 ProPlus includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, etc.。

It can be used on both Windows and Mac. The latest version is always available while the University is contracting.
Up to 15 devices can be used per person, with 5 computers and 5 tablets and 5 smartphones.

In addition, Office 365 services (OneDrive 1TB, etc.) will also be provided from the University dedicated website.

For details on Office 365 ProPlus, please refer to the relevant Microsoft website.→Office 365 ProPlus

◆About Office preinstalled when purchasing a computer

Currently, there are two types of pre-installed Office products: the regular version (packaged product) Office and the names such as “Office *** Premium”.

And, Some Office products pay annual fees for Office 365 services (such as Office 365 Solo).Please be careful when purchasing.

The Office 365 ProPlus provided by the University is close to Office Premium, Office 365 Solo, etc., not the regular version of Office.
