Faculty & Staff: How to Obtain Your Own Copy of Microsoft Office 2016 ProPlus


Microsoft Office 2016 ProPlus is available for all current Faculty & Staff members. You may use this Microsoft Office 365 license through the duration of your employment at Moraine Valley Community College. If your employment at Moraine Valley should come to an end, this copy of office will deactivate and you will be offered an opportunity to purchase a Microsoft Office 365 subscription.

Downloading and Installing Office will allow you access to:
Skype for Business
OneDrive for Business

To receive your free copy, please follow the steps below:


These are the steps that must be followed.

  1. Step 1:  Visit https://login.microsoftonline.com/ in your web browser. 


    Step 2:  An Office 365 login page will appear.



    Step 3:  Log on with your full Moraine Valley email address and password (example: your user name@morainevalley.edu). This allows you to access the license created for you by Moraine Valley Community College.


    Step 4:  Once logged in, you will see a welcome message from Microsoft.  Click on "Other installs".  It is important to click "Other installs" in order to gain access to all of the software in one download. 


    Step 5:  There are two different Versions you can install. The default is 32-bit. Depending on your operating system, you may need 64-bit. Click "Advanced" to change the default selection. If you required the default 32-bit version, continue to step 5. 

    Step 6:  After selecting your version and language, click the "Install" button. 

    Step 7:  Your web browser (Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari) will ask you to save the file to your downloads. It may look slightly different depending on the browser you are currently using.  

    Click on "Save File". This will save it to your default downloads folder. You must stay connected to the Internet while downloading. This download may take a while depending on your Internet connection speed. 


    Step 8:  A security warning may appear. Click on "Run" to continue the installation. 


    Step 9:  Continue the installation. Once completed, you will now have Office 2016 ProPlus installed on your computer.
