You don't have to have Word on your computer. You can use theWord web app available free from Microsoft and work from any computer with an Internet connection. 

  • Go to
  • Log in with your student email address and password (the account is already linked to OneDrive)
  • Click the Create menu
  • Select Word

You will also find web apps for Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote at this site.

Another cool thing about OneDrive is that, after you create documents here, you can save them "in the cloud" rather than on your computer or a USB drive. Microsoft gives you 15 GB to store these files or any others you want to upload. Anything stored here is available to you from any computer in the world.

Of course, you can always use a computer in one of the Library & Learning Centers; all computers have the Microsoft Office Suite installed. Current Library & Learning Center hours are available online.

  2. What MJC is doing is providing the full Office Suite to you for free. It may seem a little clunky but it's a good thing. You can actually download the real Word (not the online version) on your computer and four additional devices FOR FREE.
    Please stop in to the L & LC and one of our computer tech workers can help you.
