If you were directed to this page by a popup message referencing "MacOffice2016Push" on your college-owned Mac in fall 2017, you are in the right place to learn more!
Office 2011 for Mac is no longer receiving security updates from Microsoft, so all remaining computers must be upgraded to Office 2016. Please perform this upgrade while connected to the campus network (wired or wireless); it will work remotely via VPN if necessary. Allow about half an hour for the upgrade to complete; like all upgrades, it's best to avoid making the change right before a major deadline.
- Open the Self Service app that is in your Applications folder. (If you have the popup notice on screen, you can click "Do It Now" to launch Self Service.)
- Find Office 2016 Upgrade and click Install.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the upgrade.
- When the installation is complete, the new programs will be found in the Applications folder.
