You might want to take advantage of academic pricing on hardware and software at the Duke Computer Store before you graduate.

If you have a current Creative Cloud subscription, it will be deactivated when you graduate.

  • Info on your graduation copy of Microsoft Office is here https://knowledge.oit.duke.edu/?p=1046
  • Before Graduation … get copy of Office. https://software.duke.edu/node/135 Please note: Students are entitled to a free, perpetual graduation license of Microsoft Office, which will allow the installation of Office on one Mac or PC. This license will work after a student graduates. It is recommended that students only access the student option/graduation copy during their final semester since only one download and installation of one version is permitted.
  • You can also request a Duke alumni email address: https://alumni.duke.edu/benefits/alumni-email

If you will be staying on to work in some informal capacity during the summer, you can ask your sponsor to request continued physical and electronic access – although most of your NetID privileges will stay in effect for a year: https://accounts.oit.duke.edu/sponsor/extend


Congratulations on completing your course of study at the Nicholas School and best wishes in all future endeavors.
