Other Announcements

Employee Separations
When an employee separates from your department, it is important to notify the appropriate departments in order to have account access disabled. To facilitate notifications, please email to notify both Human Resources and Business Services. They will process the separation within their department, and then send out an official notice to other areas to have access disabled. This is especially important in the case of student worker and university assistant separations, as they do not normally go through an exit interview process.


Microsoft Office 2013
If you would like to have Office 2013 for Windows installed on your office computer, please follow these steps:
1. Click on the Windows Start button in the bottom left of the screen.
2. On the line that appears, Search Programs and files, type the word Software.
3. At the top of the list, you will see the words Software Center, click on that to launch the Software Center.
4. Check the box to the left of “Microsoft Office 2013 32 bit”.
5. Click the [INSTALL] button in the bottom right corner of the Software Center screen to start the install.


FREE Office 365 for Faculty & Staff - Coming Soon! 
Information Technology is working with Microsoft to offer the Office 365 suite for home use free of charge. The new Office 365 offering will allow you to install the full version of Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and more) on up to 5 compatible PCs and Macs, plus 5 tablets (including iPad!).  This benefit will replace our current Home Use Program, which only allows for two installations of Office for home use and costs $9.95. We hope to have this offering available in January…watch your email for more information!


New Macintosh Operating System – Yosemite
Apple recently released a free Mac operating system update called Yosemite. Please do not upgrade your CCSU-owned Mac to the new operating system at this time.  Information Technology needs to conduct testing to ensure this operating system is compatible with our network and systems.  If you upgrade to the new operating system  on your own and have issues, our only solution at this point will be to reimage your computer back to the currently supported version.
