Software Installation Request

NOTE: The Software Request period has ended. No new requests will be taken until Spring of 2017. Please wait until the request period opens mid-February/March. An e-mail will be sent out to faculty with notification of the new request form becoming available for use.

To ensure the most stable and open classroom or lab computing environment, Information Technology Services requires that faculty or staff request the instructional software desired for the 2016-2017 academic year. This applies to open-access computer labs/classrooms and instructor workstations (i.e.: podium computers, projector computers). These requests must be submitted well before the academic semester begins. To make a software request for the 2016–2017 academic year, complete the Instructional Software Request Form (2016-2017).


  • This year's software request deadline is March 28, 2016. This deadline applies to all software requests for open-access labs and instructor workstations for the following terms: Fall 2016, J-Term 2017, Spring 2017, and Summer 2017.
  • Please remember to include all licensing information and links to download software installation files with the software request. All requested software will be installed with default settings/configurations unless special instructions are provided and outlined on the request form.
  • Software not submitted by the March 28, 2016 deadline will not be included. Be sure to submit your requests on time.
