Hello GFCMSU students,
We need to pass on some information concerning your free version of Office Pro Plus
2013 that you may or may not have installed.
Starting daily February 9th, you may see a notice that the new version of Office Pro Plus 2016 is available for
download and installation. You can choose to ignore this notice. If you are in any
section of the following courses:
- CAPP 105 – Computer Calculator
- CAPP 120 – Introduction to Computers
- CAPP 154 – Microsoft Word
- CAPP 156 – Microsoft Excel
- CAPP 158 – Microsoft Access
Please DO NOT update your Office Pro Plus 2013. Because this version is not compatible with the current curriculum, this upgrade
may have the potential to have an adverse effect on your ability to correctly do your
homework and complete exams. There is nothing wrong with the new version or the install
process, we just want you to avoid any pitfalls during the semester.
When you are done with the current semester you are free to do the upgrade. Or, for
students that are not taking any of the classes listed above, feel free to do the
upgrade. Microsoft said that download file is 850 MB, with an additional 200MB for
each language pack, and the install should only take an average of 10-15 minutes.
