Computer Lab Software Installations

In order to allow sufficient time for software updates to be installed in the Information Technology open computer labs, Academic, and/or Regional Educational Center computer labs/classrooms, deadlines for new software updates have been established. If your department has new software that you would like to have considered for placement in the computer labs or would like to update current software, please deliver or complete the following items by the deadlines listed below:

1. Software

2. Proof of licensing certification

3. A completed online request for installation form from

4. Any additional software documentation


April 1 for Summer installation
July 1 for Fall installation
November 1 for Spring installation

All software installation decisions are based upon available resources and compatibility with the network and other applications. By instituting these deadlines, Information Technology will have time to create a new desktop image that can be tested prior to the start of semester classes. Due to the length of time required for re-imaging the computer labs, these deadlines are firm!

Special Notices:

  • Windows 7 will be upgraded to Windows 10 in all IT computer labs by Fall 2017. 
  • Please share with your faculty the access and availability of several computer labs, provided by Information Technology, for the occasional use of class teachings. The reservation labs can be reserved by contacting the I.T. Help Desk at x4357. Details on reservations can be obtained by visiting
