Student Email & Office 365
The Connecticut Community Colleges (CCC) are pleased to announce a partnership with Microsoft to offer Office 365, a suite of online services, to all CCC students.
This provides CCC students with the latest version of the full Office productivity suite, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and more available for offline and online use. From home to school, from desktop to web and the devices in between, Office delivers the tools to get work done.
