Q. Does the college provide antivirus software? What packages are supported on campus?
A. The college does not provide antivirus software. Our campus network access software recognizes all major packages, including the popular Symantec and McAfee. We recommend downloading one of the many excellent and completely free antivirus packages from vendors such as Microsoft, avast, AVG, and Avira. These can be found at most software download websites, including download.com. Antivirus software is required of Windows computers to gain network access.
Q. How do I change my password?
A. To properly change your password you need to do it in TWO places:
