What happens when my Office 365 ProPlus subscription expires?

On the day your subscription expires: You are sent an email notifying you of the expiration and advising you to renew if you are still eligible (i.e. if you are still a student at the school you were enrolled in when you ordered Office 365 ProPlus). Your account will remain active and fully functional for a grace period of seven days*.

Seven days* after your subscription expires: Your account enters Reduced Functionality Mode. The program remains installed on your computer, but you are only able to view and print your documents (features required to create/edit documents are disabled). If you renew during the next 30 days, your account is reactivated and you regain full Office 365 functionality.

30 days after your account enters Reduced Functionality Mode: Your account is permanently deleted, along with any files you had stored on OneDrive. You can order a new Office 365 ProPlus subscription if you are still eligible, but this will not restore your OneDrive files.

Kivuto support report that documents saved in Microsoft's OneDrive Cloud storage solution **SHOULD** be saved on the student's local computer in their OneDrive folder.  Finalists and Leavers just need to move the documents out of the local OneDrive folder and into another folder on their computer."
