Do you have your own PC at school with you, or are you not participating in the IM Learning program?
If so, Institutional Computing has software available to install on your personal computer. This software is only available to non-S.U. owned computers.
This is because many of our graduate students are not included in the IM Learning program.
If you are one of these students, there are few different places you can go for assistance.
If you take your computer to any of the three help desks at the Northern Virginia Campus, Health Professions Building or on main campus in Howe Hall, IC employees can install McAfee AntiVirus, Microsoft Office and Microsoft Operating System Upgrades under Shenandoah’s licensing. Although the Help Desks can install the software, they cannot give out installation disks to students.
Additionally, students that have a personal MacBook, not your S.U. MacBook, and want to install VirtualBox or Bootcamp, which are programs that run Windows on a MacBook, IC cannot use their Windows Operating System license for that purpose.
This would be an Operating System installation, and not an upgrade.
Quaisar Absar, the director of institutional computing, wanted students to know about these services from IC, since this is not widespread knowledge.
As always, if you have problems with your IM Learning technology, you can visit any of the aforementioned help desks during their normal business hours and someone will work with you.
