Laptop Program: Software for 2018-19
Updated: 11 September 2018 11:57 AM
Starting this year, you can access almost all the software required for your program without a visit to the IT Help Desk. While we will still provide the software imaging service for students who need a fresh start on their recommended laptops, students can elect to install everything they need themselves.
