What is Student Advantage?

Student Advantage/ProPlus is the software subscription service of the Microsoft Office 365 offering. The BuckeyeMail Office 365 license provides Office 365 business-class email (and OWA access). This license also provides current students access to Office 365 ProPlus services, including the ability to download and locally install Microsoft Office applications on up to five computers that you personally use; 1 TB of cloud storage through OneDrive for Business; online versions of the Office applications; mobile applications where you can access, edit and view Office documents on your mobile devices; and regular access to the latest software updates.


Current students may install Office 365 ProPlus on up to five PCs or Macs, five tablets (Windows, iPad® and Android™) and five phones. You will be prompted for your Office 365 login ( and your OSU password) in order to install the applications. After installation, Microsoft will verify your Office 365 account in the background – you may be prompted to re-authenticate your license; failure to do so will result in the installed software reverting to read-only status, and loss of access to OneDrive and mobile applications.


Who is eligible?


Any student who is currently enrolled in classes at The Ohio State University. Faculty, staff and alumni are not eligible for this program. However, faculty and staff who are also enrolled as Ohio State students are eligible to access Student Advantage software and install it on their personal devices.
