Technology at SCU


Academic Technology and Information Technology support a broad range of software applications to support the campus community - providing installation support, troubleshooting, and training.

For University owned computers, supported software is available through a number of avenues. A number of the applications can be downloaded from either the web site, or directly from the application vendor's web site. Some may require a departmental purchase for software that is supported, but not provided.
