How to register your device to Clemson for Microsoft software


By registering your device with Clemson University you gain additional access to resources such as Onedrive, Office, Licensed Software, and more.  Registering a device is simple and can be removed by you at any time. All new Clemson students should go through this process.  Employee computers should already be set up.

Warning: Clemson users with Windows 10 Home: A lot of Clemson software including Company Portal is not compatible with Windows 10 Home.  You can check the version of Windows in Settings -> System -> About. All students are entitled to a free upgrade of Windows Home to Windows Education. If you register your device using the instructions below, Windows will be updated (including adding Company Portal).  Unfortunately, there are no prompts for this so a few minutes after installing registering you will need to manually reboot.  

Clemson users with other versions of Windows 10: Registering your Windows computer will also install Company Portal.
