This email will have instructions on how to log in to download your FREE Microsoft software products.  If you do not see the email, first, check in your JUNK folder. If you still don’t have the email from DreamSpark then contact the department secretary, Donna Scattone, at or 825-2155. She can advise on how to proceed.
