TOOLS YOU CAN USE:  how to change from the Exchange Only Plan 1 License to an A2 license after the upgrade from Live@EDU to Office 365:

 

Example PowerShell command to change from the "Exchange Online Plan 1" license to the "A2 FULL SUITE" license (with no service plans disabled) for one student user:

                Get-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName example@contoso.edu | Set-MsolUserLicense -RemoveLicenses contoso:EXCHANGESTANDARD_STUDENT –AddLicenses contoso:STANDARDWOFFPACK_STUDENT
