CLC Software Request Application for Fall 2017 Now Available

It’s time to request the software you would like to use in Computer Learning Centers (CLC) across campus for the Fall 2017 semester.

You can access the application on the EdTech CLC web site and click the Submit Request button on the page.

The software request application will close at the end of the business day on April 21, 2017, so please get your requests in by then.

Even if you have requested software previously, we need to know if you are still planning on using the software this Fall. Please submit software requests for all of your classes, if you have more than one class that accesses the requested software. This process helps us make sure we have enough licenses for your software requests as well as determining if we need to purchase new licenses for new software that is requested.

Questions, comments, or concerns about the CLC Software Request process can be sent to edtech@mst.edu.
