Getting Access to Office 365

You will be able to access Office 365 after you enroll in your courses. This process may take up to 24 hours to complete.

Access to Office 365 allows KCKCC Students, Faculty, and Staff to download Office Applications to their personal device using their KCKCC login. Make sure your device has enough disk space as well as a good connection to the internet before beginning the download process. 

Your access to Office 365 will be removed after you graduate or are no longer eligible to enroll in your courses. It may take up to 30 days for Office 365 to fully deactivate. During that time, you will receive prompts to purchase a license to continue using the software.

If you have any issues with downloading Office or receive license errors, contact the helpdesk to speak with a technician at 913-288-7479, option #3
