University Hardware: Standardized Support (faculty/staff only)

August 2016

Consult with Cedarville's Information Technology department before purchasing any computer-related hardware for your department. Start that process by submitting an online IT request. We will try to help you select the appropriate equipment for your needs and obtain quality pricing through our vendors. If you purchase hardware through us, we are better able to help you with installation, training, operation, and repair. We cannot provide these services for unsupported hardware, except in unique cases.

Thinking about purchasing software? See the University Software: Standardized Support and University Software: Pricing and Support help pages.
