Miami recommends the following software versions*:

  • Microsoft Office 2016 Professional Plus (Windows)

Miami provides support for Windows 10. Those wishing to upgrade to a newer version of Windows should be certain that their computer meets the specifications set forth by Microsoft before doing so.


I understand that:

  • If I purchase a backup disk and open the package, I will not be able to return the software.
  • If I am unsure of what to purchase, I should contact the IT Services Support Desk for assistance at 513-529-7900 or
  • If the software is required for a class, I am responsible for knowing the exact version of the software to obtain.
  • For the Backup disk: Entry of an accurate shipping address will help to ensure receipt of the software in a timely manner, regardless of the shipping option.**
