Academic Software Requests -- August 1 each year
Faculty need to provide academic software requests to the manager or technology support specialist in their area by August 1 of each academic year. We need an explanation and justification of the need. If funding is available or you have identified funding, we will deploy the new software in the spring semester. We field requests in the fall, fund them if possible, and deploy the software in the spring.
We cannot support trial versions or partial purchases for a lab. For example, if you want software for HYEG 203, we need to find funding for 21 seats; we cannot support five seats.
If you find open source or freeware software that meets your needs, we will test the software to ensure there are no compatibility issues with existing software or hardware and install that software for you in a classroom or instructional computer lab.
Academic Software Funding
Currently, the Academic Software budget is $150,000.00 for annual software purchases and software renewals. The table below indicates the approved purchases and renewals for AY 2016-2017.
