How to sign in and authorize Microsoft Office apps in iPadOS and iOS


You won't have full access to all features in any Microsoft Office app until they have been authorized.


.To sign in or authorize Microsoft Office, follow these steps.

  • Open any Microsoft Office app like Word or Excel. 
  • Tap Sign in. When prompted, enter your Bowdoin email address and tap Sign In again.
  • Choose "Sign in with your Microsoft 365 school account" and tap Next.
  • You will be redirected to sign in with your complete Bowdoin credentials.

After you sign in, your account is automatically added to the other Office apps installed on your device so you only need to do this once for all Office apps.
