Uninstall Office Pro Plus in macOS

Issue/Question

  • My Office Pro Plus software (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) is unlicensed
  • I have purchased a personal copy of Microsoft Office

Scope

  • Effective 02 January 2019, Miami University will remove the Office 365 license for all former Miami University students
    • This action affects all former Miami University students — Miami University does not maintain a license for Office 365 for former Miami University students
  • Within thirty days of license removal, the version of Office Pro Plus you installed through Miami will become unlicensed; and Office 365 will enter into reduced functionality mode

User

  • Former Miami University Student

Environment

  • Software for Personally-owned Computers
  • Microsoft Office
    • 10314: Office 365
    • Office Pro Plus
  • macOS

Cause

  • If you have purchased a personal copy or subscription to Office 365, you must uninstall Office Pro Plus from your computer, then download and reinstall Office from your personal purchase
    • This is necessary because your Miami license for Office contains products that are not included in Microsoft’s personal-use plans

Resolution

  1. Open Finder
  2. Open Applications
  3. Drag each of the following Microsoft Office applications to the trash:
    • Microsoft Excel
    • Microsoft Word
    • Microsoft PowerPoint
    • Microsoft Outlook
