Microsoft announces pricing for Office 365 for higher ed

Microsoft has been making a big push for Office 365, its subscription model for its online Office productivity suite.

As part of that, Microsoft revealed pricing today for Office 365 University.

Higher-ed students, faculty and staff will be eligible to purchase a four-year subscription of Office 365 University for $79.99 — about $1.67 a month — when it becomes available in the first quarter of 2013, Microsoft announced.

Office 365 University includes two installations — for either PC or Mac — and includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access.

Starting today, Microsoft is also allowing those who who buy Office University 2010 or Office University for Mac 2011 to get Office 365 University for free when it becomes available.
