Software Support

For Southern Adventist University employees, we gladly accept software-related questions and will do everything we can (including coming to your office for one-on-one training, if needed) to help.

University employees may call us for support for:

  • most Microsoft software
  • most Adobe software
  • Apple OS X 

We also support specialty software required for departments. However, we ask that departments/schools check with us before purchasing software so we can determine if it will work with our computers/network.
