Office 365 is Coming to NCCU Faculty and Staff

Published: Monday, February 13, 2017

ITS has heard your requests for additional storage and more collaboration tools. As a result, we will be rolling out Office 365 for faculty and staff this semester. In preparation, we have been monitoring other schools’ experiences with cloud e-mail solutions and have done extensive testing on our campus to ensure this upgrade is ideal for our environment. 

What You Need to Know to Prepare:

  • The Outlook Desktop Client will stay the same and your email address will stay the same.
  • Calendar permissions, shared calendars and automatic forwarding will not migrate with the upgrade. You will need to recreate them.
  • Mobile devices will need to be reconfigured. Instructions will be provided in the reminder notification.

Features of Office 365:

  • 1 TB of storage for email and documents
  • OneDrive for Business: Ability to easily share documents with others and control who can see and edit each shared file
  • Office Mobile apps: Scaled-down, touch-optimized versions of Office for your smartphone or tablet
  • Office Online: Cloud-based versions of popular Office apps

When Will My Account Be Moved?

  • Email migrations are tentatively scheduled to begin mid-February.  You will receive a notification informing you of your migration date a week before the migration begins and a reminder email the day of your migration.
