Early Registration / Banner Job Submissions
Early registration for Spring 2015 begins Friday, November 7th and is open through Sunday, November 23rd. To ensure that registration isn’t negatively impacted for students, Information Technology is reminding all Banner users to execute large, Banner Job Submission processes during off-peak periods, prior to 7:00am and after 2:30pm. Any large Banner Job Submission process running during peak periods and interfering with Banner performance will be stopped without notification. Your cooperation to privilege the registration process during the November 7-23 timeframe is necessary to safeguard that registration goes smoothly for students.

Save $$$ on SAVIN Printing!As a result of cost savings initiatives at the University, on Tuesday October 27, print queues for Savin MFP (multi-function printers) devices will default to black and white printing. If you need to print in color, you can still change the print job to print in color. Color printing is significantly more expensive. If you have other color network printers that you would like to have defaulted to black and white printing, please email the IT Help Desk and include the PRN number of the printer.
Weekly Maintenance - Reminder
Please log off your computer when leaving for the day every Thursday, but do not power it off. This will allow updates to be sent down to your computer on Friday after 12:00am. If you turn your computer off and leave it off over night on Thursday, shortly after turning it back on, your computer will restart in order to install and apply any updates. If you leave your computer logged in Thursday night into Friday, you may lose any unsaved data you were working on when the computer restarts.
