STUDENT ACCOUNTS

NEW/UPDATED SOFTWARE FOR SPRING QUARTER

SOFTWARE TESTING

We will send out notices about software testing later this week. If anyone is unable to test during the test period we can make arrangements to have testing done during the following week or two.

Why is testing necessary?

SUMMER QUARTER SOFTWARE

There is a one week break between spring & summer quarter. CWU is also in session during this time. These two factors greatly limit our ability to re-image labs. Therefore we are requesting no changes in software if at all possible. We will not send out software request packets for summer, instead we will send out a letter outlining the limitations, but explaining that we will definitely work with departments if a change in software is necessary.

MS OFFICE 2007

LEARNING COMMONS

TECH FEE REQUESTS

ACS’ Tech Fee requests are first reviewed by the Technology Advisory Committee (TAC). TAC’s recommendations are forwarded to the Tech Fee Management Committee (TFMC) who will consider the recommendations in making their final funding decisions. TAC’s has made initial recommendations but they still have some decisions to make before forwarding them to TFMC.

Tech Fee requests submitted by ACS – in no particular order
