Tips for Using the Open Computer Lab
- Students should save their work often.
- Students should purchase a USB drive to save their files. Files saved on lab computers may be deleted, and computers are not reserved so workstation availability is unlikely. An ASC computer assistant can help students who are unfamiliar with saving files to a USB drive.
- The Academic Success Centers do not provide headphones.
- ASC computer assistants are not tutors. They provide only technical support and troubleshooting for College-owned computer and network equipment. Computer assistants do not help students with course assignments, projects, concepts or personal computer issues.
- Students may print in the open computer labs at all Academic Success Centers. However, the College has a Pay-to-Print system (10¢ per page) that requires a student to have a Seminole State ID or Guest card, which may be purchased at any Card Services Office. Money may be deposited to a student's Seminole State ID card at the Automatic Deposit Machines (ADM) at any campus library.
