* The full Office 365 Pro Plus service is only available to currently enrolled students. When a student graduates or stops actively pursuing a degree, the Office 365 license is removed from his or her account. Graduates will retain their Yellowjackets email addresses under an alumni license, but all other software licenses (OneDrive, Office 365 Pro Plus, and Office WebApps) will be removed. Students who are no longer taking classes and have not completed a degree program will not retain any of the software or services—including email. Please do not keep sensitive or important documents in your inbox or online storage; BHSU is not responsible for any loss of data caused by the aforementioned termination of services.
