Software, Alumni Email, Etc.

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


Working on Campus, NetID

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

The OIT service desk has put together a very helpful article to assist students and staff who receive these questionshttps://oit.duke.edu/help/articles/netid-student-access-after-leaving-duke


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