The productivity suite is aimed at college kids and will be cheaper than a regular license.
Starting in February, college students can subscribe to the service for a four-year subscription price of just $79.99. Microsoft notes this costs students just $1.67 per month.
If you do not graduate in four years or move on to Master's and Doctorate programs, you can renew for another four years at the same price. Faculty and staff of higher education institutions can also access the software.
Being a "cloud" service means all documents created are automatically saved to your SkyDrive cloud storage locker. With each subscription, students are given 27GB of free storage.
Office 365 can be installed on two devices and includes access to online versions of Word, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access.
