Requesting Academic Software

Information Services needs to know what academic software faculty members will be using in courses each semester. All classroom computers are pre-installed with Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader, internet browsers, and a video player. If you plan on using any academic software listed in the table below, submit an academic software request.

Requesting New Software

Information Services understands that faculty members are continually looking at how they can improve student learning in their courses by using new software, and that software companies update or release new versions throughout the academic year. If a faculty member would like to request the purchase of new software or a new version of software the university already owns, please contact Information Services by submitting an academic software request.
