Faculty and Staff

Does CCSU provide any applications for the iPad?

No, we do not provide any applications for the iPad. The iPad is not a laptop, therefore you cannot install our standard applications such as Microsoft Office on it. Application purchases can be made through iTunes on an individual basis. For more information on iTunes, visit http://www.apple.com/itunes/.

How do I keep my iPad secure?

If you are going to use your iPad to connect to the CCSU e-mail server, we highly recommend you use a passcode lock to secure your iPad. To set up a passcode lock:

  1. On the iPad, tap the Settings icon. 
  2. On the Settings menu, tap General.
  3. Tap Passcode Lock, then tap "Turn Passcode On."
  4. Enter a passcode, then re-enter the passcode when prompted.
