Campus Upgrades to the Newest Versions of Microsoft Office Completed

The CTS MS Office Upgrade committee has been working hard over the summer coordinating with departments on upgrading their computers to the latest versions of MS Office (version 2010 for PCs, version 2011 for Macs).  To date, the majority of campus has been completed.  For any faculty and staff that were away for the summer with their machine, a self-install option is available for PC users and Mac users will need to call the Technology Support Center (x3456) to schedule an upgrade.

All computer labs and Advanced Technology Classrooms (ATCs) have also been upgraded.

Several instructor-led workshops will be available in the fall.  A general overview workshop that covers new features in the overall suite as well as individual workshops on Word, Excel and Powerpoint will be offered.  They are in the process of being planned and once scheduled will be available for online registration from the CTS Training site.

This campus upgrade was accomplished through a Microsoft Campus Agreement which CTS purchased that allows Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus for PCs and Office 2011 Standard for Macs to be installed on all SUNY Oswego owned computers at no charge to departments/offices.  It also allows faculty and staff to purchase either Office 2010 or 2011 for a personally-owned computer at a low price of $9.95 plus tax.  For more information on the personal purchase, review the details at our Microsoft Home Use Program page.
