About Office 365

Office 365 is a collection of Microsoft Office applications and productivity services that are enabled over the Internet (cloud-based computing). Use 365 to access your email, calendar, the Office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), as well as your cloud-based storage (OneDrive).

The Office 365 service provided with your Central Penn email account allows for the installation of the Office products on up to 5 different devices. 

BOTA & LTA - Business Office Technology Assessment & Legal Technology Assessment

All Central Penn students within the Legal Studies and Paralegal programs have access to Legal Technology Assessment (LTA) from Procertas. LTA trains participants to use common applications (Word, Excel, & PDF) specifically for how the tools are used in the legal field.

For more general training on common business software (Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), all Central Penn College students have access to Basic Office Technology Assessment (BOTA). Because each person will have a unique login, the assessments allow users to tailor their training to their individual needs.

To obtain access, reply to the Welcome email that will go out once per term to establish an account. If you need additional help with access, contact Margie Stuski.
