    Click on the above link and put in your work and/or university email address. If it works, you'll get an email back that allows you to download a full version of Office 2013 Pro Plus (or Office 2011 for Mac) for $10, with the option to get a dvd for another $13. It worked fine for me with my university address. No guarantees for anybody else, of course...

    Works for me. Now to decide if I really do want to buy it since I don't really use it that much.

    Mine worked. I'm on the same deal with stab... I'm not sure if I really want it that bad (although $10 is practically free)

    I can testify that UC Davis students are eligible for this.

    It's "practically" free. As in, the amount of money I would spend on it would be similar to almost spending nothing at all. Which is less than .16% what I made this month not including my tax return.

    I went ahead and bought it even though I have had exactly free previous office copies.

    This is where going to community college fails me.

    did you even check? You might need to contact the district your school is in and they'll e-mail you something.

    Dreamspark Premium + Staff/Faculty discounts = All MS Dreamspark software for free + Faculty discounts for the rest (for example MS Office (Win/OSX) at roughly 6€ + VAT) :P

    Gotta say that I like what Microsoft is doing with students/universities. After getting into the Uni, I can't see why anyone studying (with access to DS) would prefer to illegally download one of the programs..

    ps. It took my Uni 4 years to get Dreamspark access to all students (including me).. At first it was only for about 2 study programs out of roughly 15 and I study at a University of Technology :glare:

    Hmm, I have dreamspark access, but here in Sweden we have some "special deal" for students on Office 2010 (yeah.. 2010, not 2013) for 925 SEK which is $145... bah, humbug!

    That's nice, but is there any reason to upgrade? I already have 2010, and I can't imagine there will be any radical changes - or that my professors will demand I use the latest version for their courses.
