How do I Install Office 365?


For the web-based version of Office 365, you will need to know and have access to your QCC Student Email, Qmail. 
You can obtain Office 365 directly through the Microsoft website. Follow these steps:

  • Go to and Sign in. Be sure to use your QCC Student Email address as the username. Your default password will be:
    • the first two letters of your last name
    • followed by the last four numbers of your Social Security number
    • and then Qc (Example: John Smith would be sm1234Qc).
  • Once you login, you will be prompted to set up your password recovery questions and method. This only takes a minute and it is strongly recommended so that you can recover your password in the future if needed! Follow the instructions on the website.
  • If you have difficulty logging in, please call the QCC IT Service Desk at 508-854-4427.
