Office 365/DCCCD Student Email

​Shortcut to this page:

​All students (and employees) of the colleges of DCCCD get free Microsoft Office 365.

Microsoft Office 365 comes with Outlook email (which we call DCCCD Student Email). Office 365 also includes a calendar, Office programs such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel, and OneDrive document storage.

You can download Office 365 now. Clicking on the link will lead you to a page with instructions.

But you don’t have to download Office 365 now. If you choose not to, you will automatically be assigned a free email account when registering for classes. Each student will have his or her own unique email address.
