This March the Microsoft licenses expired for the old accounts giving an error that you would need to purchase Microsoft products.

Instead of purchasing those products you can remove the old data using the Microsoft SaRA tools and sign in using your new student email which has a license that will be active as long as you are a student and for one year after you take your last class.
