There are various versions of MS Word…there are various versions of the Mac OS…and there are many MacBook Pro models. So depending on the answers to these unknowns…will depend on the answer.

MS Word is a pay-for application. I don't think that any version of MS Word compatible with a MacBook Pro is free.

Finally…there are free (or low cost) alternatives to MS Word.

If your son is in college ... his institution might supply free or low-cost copies of Microsoft Office -- he'll need to check with his computer store about that.

Failing that, get the home and family edition of MS Office, or a subscription to Office 365 (the web-based version). Both cost about $100.
