However, you will still have access to the online version. To access the online version, please go to and use your APU NetID and password to log in.

To download your own offline copy of Microsoft Office 365, please follow the following steps:

  • Click on the "Install Office apps" button near the top right side of the screen.

  • Select the download that's appropriate for you. 


If you previously had an older version of Office365 installed with a different license on macOS, you may need to use Microsoft's tool to fully remove the old license before you can properly sign in with your APUNetID. Click here for Microsoft's support article about their license removal tool.
