Eligibility for many Office 365 services is based on primary affiliation. Your email quota and access to the full version of Microsoft Office (Office 365 ProPlus) are the primary services affected.  All active faculty, staff, and students have access to the full online suite for Office 365.  Alumni are limited to email only.
