The first step is to enroll in a course at Stanly Community College and remain in the course. Please keep in mind that the benefit does not become active until classes start. So if you were to enroll today the Office 365 subscription is not immediately available. Typically, it will be available at the beginning of the semester, in some cases a few days before.
Next, you will need to find out your Stanly Community College login name and password. If you don’t know this you can contact the technical support SCC Tech Support at https://helpdesk.stanly.edu or by calling 704-991-0222. They can assist you in finding the information.
Then, you’ll need to visit http://login.microsoftonline.com. Once there you’ll put in your username + @stanly.edu. So, if your username is jsmith1234 then you would put in email@example.com. Once you click in the password field it will begin to redirect you to a special sign-in page for SCC students.
Once you are redirected to the login page for Stanly Community College you may need to re-enter your username + @stanly.edu as seen below. Then, enter in your SCC password as well. If you are a new student it is important that you change your password from the default password you were given for your account before logging in here. If you have not changed your password from the default you can do so by visiting https://webadvisor.stanly.edu.
After logging you’ll be taken to the Microsoft Office installation page. You’ll see here that you’re receiving the full office version suitable for your Introduction to Computers class and any other course that requires you to use a Microsoft Office Product. You can choose either the 32 bit version or the 64 bit version. If you’re not sure what you need choose the 32 bit version. It will run on any version of Windows. Then, simply click the install button.
Once you click the Install button it will prompt you to download the file and may ask where you want to save it. Your screens may look slightly different depending upon which web browser software you’re using to install Office.
You may also be prompted by your User Access Control feature just to confirm that you want to download and install Office onto your system. Assuming you do want to continue with the installation, click the “Yes” button.
The installation should begin shortly and then you’ll begin to see various messages popping up informing you of the installation status and progress.
If your connection is a little slow you may also receive an information message telling you it may take a while.
Accept the license agreement if you are in agreement with the terms. You must agree to the terms in order to install the software.
Type in the email address you want to use to sign into your Microsoft Services. You could user your SCC email address if you like. SCC may not work.
If you’re having issues logging in, or needing technical assistance, then please contact SCC Tech Support by calling 704-991-0222, sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or through live chat.
