If you missed out on updating your old Windows 7/8.1 and if you're currently a student/your student email was never converted to an alumni one/your school has the same email domain for alumni & students you can still get Win10 for free

http://onthehub.com/windows-10-ed...-students/
http://onthehub.com/blog/what-stu...windows-10

Like previous Academic versions, Education is like Enterprise without LTSB & Cortana (disregard what the page says, it did have Cortana but Cortana is permanently disabled right now) & other stuff u can read here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Win...ison_chart
If your school's catalog also list "Windows 10 Multiple Editions" for free, that actually includes Home & Pro but not neither Enterprise or Education don't think, sorry I can't check coz each OnTheHub acct apparently is limited to download ONE version of Windows 10.

If you want to create Media Creation stuff https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/s...cwindows10

Make sure to copy down your Product Key, it's on the receipt/order page in red letters
-----------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Office 365 Education https://products.office.com/en-us...b=students has been posted a lot I know, I'm not sure how this version is different, coz I can't tell what the difference is other than one is online & one is not, but if your school/alumni email address doesn't work there, you can try getting Office Professional Plus 2016 thru OnTheHub too http://onthehub.com/download/free...-students/
My .edu email worked with Office 365 Education but OnTheHub didn't have Office Pro Plus 2016 listed for my school to download, so can't download to see what the differences are lol

edit: nvm I just realized Office Pro Plus 2016 has been posted posted before http://slickdeals.net/f/8975303-office-2016-student-faculty-potentially-free

Awww, I guess I'm lucky coz my school uses the same email domain for students & alumni
Hmm I wonder if ur email would temporarily work again if u registered as a returning student for a CGS class, or any class, before a semester started and dropped it before the Add/Drop period ends so u won't get charged....
lolol ur very 1st post
Funny that was asked though coz I linked the wikipedia page with all the Win10 versions on the market right now & the differences lolol.

Looks like my old school requires that I have an account for their DreamSpark Premium WebStore.

Their is a link if you google for windows 10 upgrade is you require the assistive devices like narrarator and magnifier. You can still upgrade for free. It is like the 3rd link that pops up and they dont verify that you need the devices.

I'm not quite clear on how to get Office Professional. I do see how to get win10, but as someone stated, you can still get that for free through the assistive devices route.
