Access Microsoft Project on a Mac for Academic Use

 

  1. Microsoft Project is not available natively on macOS. If you are on a Mac computer, you will have to use Horizon to access Microsoft Project.
     
  2. Microsoft Project is available in Horizon on a per-class basis. A UNCW faculty/staff member may submit a ticket request here for their classes. Make sure to include the course section information (for example CSC-101-003, Spring 2022), so we can add that section to the access list in Horizon, as it is not available to everyone.
