An update is available in the Software Center for all University owned, Windows 10 devices. This is a required update that takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and can be done at your convenience through July 31, 2018. This upgrade is very important as Microsoft will soon be ending support for earlier versions of Windows 10.
Information Technology at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi has recently upgraded our anti-virus software to provide enhanced security. As part of this change, all University owned Windows computers will need to upgrade their anti-virus software to the latest version, Sophos Central Anti-Virus. All faculty and staff have the ability to upgrade the software themselves at a time that is most convenient to minimize the impact on University computers any disruption in the work day. Installation takes approximately fifteen minutes and requires at least two restarts for completion.

Changes to Wireless Network Coming Soon: Beginning Monday, April 23, the Division of Information Technology will be making changes to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s wireless network to further heighten security across campus.
