Notes: (this page is reviewed/updated during June/July)

  1. Apple does not allow downgrading to an older version than what was installed on the computer when it was shipped. Therefore, we can not guarantee a specific operating system at all times in regards to Apple products.
  2. These software applications are continually being updated. Version numbers change too rapidly for publication.

Requests for software not included in the list above can be made by completing a form and submitting it to the Directors of Technology Services. These requests are to be made through the Dean or department heads as costs for these items may have to be covered by the departments/schools.
