Expect Change

Not only have we completed many projects this past semester, but we also have many more changes to come within this fiscal year. The Help Desk will be upgrading the hardware available to students in the computer labs located in Science 115, Math 104, and Fine Arts 206. These labs will have all new hardware and the operating system will be updated to Windows 7 Professional with the Microsoft Office 2010 application suite. The labs aren’t the only things that will be changing.The Help Desk will also be replacing approximately 250 computers on campus this fiscal year. Administrative Computing will be changing the way student billing statements are viewed. The new format will be much easier to read in that it is not sorted based on when a transaction took place, but rather what category it falls under. This category view will be a lot simpler and easier to read. Administrative Computing has also made a “Net Price Calculator” available to students. This is a tool that allows students to calculate the estimated cost for their semester and also shows them what financial aid they might qualify for.
