Information Technology Services

Our Information Technology Services team is proud to provide excellent customer service and support. We assist users and provide solutions to technical issues by providing recommendations, documented solutions, and by responding promptly to requests for assistance.

Many of the links on this page will take you to services we provide or that we manage. Although the links to these services will take you directly to the information, some of our online services require authentication and have been integrated through our New River portal, which provides simple and secure single sign-on access.

Use the links below to learn more about us, the projects we are involved in, our services, and the non-credit training we offer for employees. New students and employees may also learn more about us and our online services from orientation training sessions. Contact your advisor or supervisor for more information.
