Prior to the beginning of each semester at the College, Information Technology (IT) updates academic-related software applications on the computers in smart classrooms, computer labs, meeting rooms, and the Library Student Computing Center. This service is designed to support the changing instructional needs of the faculty.

What software do you need for the upcoming semesters?

We want to ensure that your classroom has everything you need. You will find a list of the software that is standard in classrooms at the link below.

Classroom/Lab Software Standard

Do you know of applications that you will need for your classrooms’ computer(s) for upcoming semester(s)? If so, please request that software through the following link.

Classroom Software Request

To assure adequate time to install software for the beginning of each semester, software requests must be received by the following dates:

Semester Needed: Request Must Be Received By:
Summer Sessions May 23
Fall July 1
Spring December 1

Please remember that your department is responsible for all licenses and software purchases.

What can you expect?

  1. If there are any files on the computers that you want to save, you will be responsible for backing them up. Our process of re-imaging or updating software applications each semester requires that the computer be “wiped clean” of existing data.
  2. It is the requestor’s responsibility to gather information about the software. For example, installation CDs, license information or websites from where the software can be downloaded.
  3. Please keep in mind that some software may not be able to be installed due to incompatibility issues with the operating systems or other software that is already installed on the computers. If this is the situation, we will work with you and the vendors for possible solutions.

We look forward to working with you. Please contact the IT Helpdesk at Helpdesk@cofc.edu or 953-3375 option #3 with any questions you may have.
