Software Installation Request

Overview

  • Request the installation of software to be used on a University-owned device.
  • Faculty and staff can easily download and manage many software applications through a software management system already available on your University-owned computers
  • Software Center is available for Windows computers. SCSU Self-Service is available for Mac computers.
  • Software that is not available in one of our self-service applications will need to be installed by a technician. 
  • If a software license or subscription is required, the software request will need to be approved by IT Procurement. 

 

Benefits:

Software installation via Software Center or SCSU Self-Service is configured so it can be easily installed on state-owned computers without the need of an administrator or a technician.
