IT Announcement - 3/30/2017
Sunday Maintenance Reminder
Every Sunday from 12:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. all systems (e-mail, Banner, wireless, etc.) will be intermittently unavailable while important maintenance and updates are performed.
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 overnight 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.
Early Registration & Banner Job Submissions -
April 7 through April 21
Early registration for Fall 2017 begins Friday, April 7 and is open through Friday, April 21. 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 April 7-21 timeframe is necessary to safeguard that registration goes smoothly for students.
The IT Department is implementing a new anti-virus system called Cylance to replace McAfee.

If you are interested in how Cylance works, here is a video that shows McAfee and Cylance running side-by-side. To read more about Cylance, visit https://www.cylance.com/.
