Finally, students will need office software including word processing, spreadsheet and presentation tools (such Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint) and other software tools to submit assignments electronically.  As part of your enrolment to a Yorkville University program you will be provided with a  free Microsoft Office 365.
