Microsoft Office 2013

VWCC faculty and staff can now get Office 2013 for their home computer. Microsoft is charging $9.95 per copy to download the complete version of Office 2013. The $9.95 gives you a license to install Microsoft Office on one home computer. You can also purchase a backup DVD for $13.99. This is still an excellent deal and is only available to VWCC faculty and staff, not to students.
