The Division of Information Technology provides technology solutions and enables business process improvements that support teaching, learning and administrative functions at the University.
The Technology Support Center (TSC) staff are the first point of contact for technology services for the University community. They answer technology questions and assist in resolving requests, such as password resets, Royal Card support and services, wireless connectivity setup on devices, and exam scanning. You can now schedule to meet with a TSC team member (virtually or in person) to claim your email account, get your Royal Card, and setup your Two Step (DUO authentication).
The TSC, in collaboration with the office of Academic and Media Services, also assists faculty with University software, systems, and other technology equipment in various classrooms and conference rooms.
