As part of the Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus package we offer for free to all active GCU students, you can also download Office for iPad. Office for iPad contains touch-friendly versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Each application is downloaded from the App store separately. Once you set up the first app, the other two will automatically log you into your account.
Start by navigating to the App store.
Once you are inside of the App store, search Word to locate Microsoft Word.
If you have previously purchased Microsoft Word for iPad, you will see a cloud icon; otherwise, a Free icon will appear instead. If the Free icon is displayed, you will need to enter your iCloud username and password in order to purchase the app.
After you are finished purchasing the app, your iPad will begin the download and install Microsoft Word for iPad. The download and installation process can take quite a bit of time depending on which version of iPad you have and the speed of your Internet connection.
Once the installation is finished, open the app and you will see the Word logo appear.
After a short period of time, you will see a series of Office banners appear. Swipe your finger to the left two times and tap Continue.
Next, enter your MyGCU email address and tap Next.
In order to unlock Office for iPad, tap Work account.
Enter your MyGCU email address and password. You can choose Keep me signed in if you would like to automatically sign into other Office for iPad apps. Finally, tap Sign In.
You’re all set!
