    • Upgrade assistance and recommendations
    • Pick-up and delivery (campus office)

    The Eagle Help Desk offers limited assistance with student personally owned computers. Before working on a student's computer, the student must sign a liability waiver.

    • Wireless configuration
    • Assist with general install of antiviral software
    • Software support for common campus applications
    • General review and suggested steps
