You can use the plan until you are no longer enrolled or employed at the University. Eligibility may be re-verified at any time. At expiration, the Office applications enter a reduced-functionality mode, which means documents can be viewed but it isn’t possible to edit or create new documents. In addition, online services associated with the school email address, for example Office Online and OneDrive, will no longer work. Please copy any personal files you need to access later to another storage device before you leave.
