Windows XP and Office 2003 Support Ends April 8, 2014

On April 8, 2014 Microsoft will no longer be providing security updates for Windows XP or Office 2003. If you or a student employee are using a computer in an office environment and it still has the Windows XP operating system on it or Office 2003, please contact the TAC at tac@ferris.edu or
231-591-4822 and place a ticket to have it upgraded. Our current campus standards are Windows 7 and Office 2013.

Do you know of any lab computers still using Windows XP? If there is specialty software that will not run on Windows 7, contact the TAC to discuss upgrading the lab software with your support technicians. Microsoft Office will be upgraded to Office 2013 this summer in labs and classrooms.
