Microsoft Office 2013 and 365
Office 365 and Office 2013 were officially released on Tuesday, January 29, 2013. Delta College will be using Office 2013 for all of its CST and OAT classes currently requiring the use of a Microsoft Office product beginning in the Fall semester of 2013.
Microsoft has a great deal for students. It’s called Office 365 University. Students get a 4-year Office 365 subscription (includes updates) for $79.99. It includes the four major apps, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access, plus Outlook, Publisher and OneNote (and 20GB cloud storage and 60 minutes of Skype calls/month).

Computers can process masses of information rapidly and accurately. Computer Science and Information Technology is a dynamic field of study that is in a constant state of change as technology advances. Some educational institutions refer to this field as Computer Science (CS); others refer to it as Computer Information Systems; and still others may actually classify it as Information Technology (IT).
