Students in a BYOL program will be able to use a virtual PC (vPC) to access a Microsoft Windows environment and any program-specific software on their laptop. Students are also able to install Office365 on their computer free of charge to use while they are enrolled in classes. Installation details and instructions for these applications can be found at http://guides.southeasttech.edu.
Students in a BYOL program can receive software support for their laptop not purchased through Southeast Tech at the Southeast Tech I.T. Support Center. This includes assistance with setting up and accessing vPC, connecting to the wireless network, setting up a Southeast Tech email account and removing viruses and malware. Basic software support is provided free of charge. Students requiring more in-depth tasks such as virus and malware removal or other services that would require their laptop to remain at the I.T. Support Center for assistance will incur a small fee for the service. A Southeast Tech loaner laptop is included as part of the service fee, to ensure that students are able to continue with their coursework while their laptop is at the I.T. Support Center.
