Hello @aronhender Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thank you for posting your question. I'm not sure if you realized this or not, but you have posted your question to the global Canvas Community website where people from all over the world come to ask questions, suggest new Feature Ideas, collaborate, join groups, write blog posts, review "how to" Guides and video tutorials, and lot more...all about Canvas. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people here in the Community wouldn't be able to answer your question because we aren't familiar with the policies or the offers your school might have regarding the Microsoft Office products. I did try searching the DeVry University website, and I found this page which may have some helpful information for you: How Online Classes Work | DeVry University. (Scroll down to the section on "PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS".)
I hope this information will be of help to you, Jared. Good luck!
