For your online, hybrid, or Web-enhanced classes, you may occasionally have technological problems. Begin your assignments early to ensure that, if you do have technical issues, you will have enough time to correct the problems before your due dates.

The Helpdesk is located in the Ragsdale Computer Lab, Room 105.
