Requesting Classroom and Lab Computer Software

This article overviews software information, and software purchasing, for Classroom and Lab machines. IT provides commonly used software in the labs on campus, but any specialty software is up to the department to choose and purchase. If you need software installed or upgraded to support instruction, please submit the “Classroom and Lab Computer Software Request" in our Service Catalog.

Timeline & Due Dates
  • Deadline for software requests for start of classes in the fall is April 15th*
  • Deadline for software requests for start of classes in the spring is November 15th
  • For new software requests that are submitted outside of these deadlines, expect 10-15 business days before the software are installed in your lab.

* As of the last edit of this article, the submission deadline for the Fall 2020 Semester has been extended without a determined deadline. We ask you to submit requests as early as possible for software to be installed in the fall.
