As a student, you'll be using many of our college technology resources and systems. Here's a quick overview and some tips for getting started:
Your Student Network/Computer Account gives you access to many important resources including Blackboard, myMadisonCollege, your Home Directory (H drive), student email, campus computers, and access to the library databases from off-campus.
Keep your username and password secure. Do not share this information.
Remember to log out of any applications and log off computers, especially when using a campus or public shared computer.
Computers and Technology
Save and Backup
Be sure to save your work early and often, and backup your files. We recommend saving to your network drive, also called your H drive or Home Directory, using a USB drive, and sending/saving a copy to your college email account.
Note: Do Not save to the hard drive or desktop of a campus computer. Your work will not be saved.
Software application helps encourage students to think before you print. Students receive 150 total free B&W prints per semester as a courtesy of the College = 100 B&W prints or 10 color prints, plus a bonus 50 problem B&W prints or 5 color prints (printer jams, selection errors, or any other unintended printing)
Note: Your semester's starting balance will display as $7.50, or the equivalent of your free print allotment.
