CSUSM Retirees Association Benefits

Microsoft offers members of the CSUSM Retirees Association a free Office 365 A1 license, which includes free web apps such as Outlook email, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive, Teams, and more (see all apps included in A1).

Therefore, association members will retain their Outlook email addresses and cloud storage, including all current content.
