Hi Folks,

ACNS has released the latest guidelines for OS and Browser support for the University. Systems running these versions will not receive security updates by their manufacturer. As a result, they are no longer considered secure. Moreover, access over VPN will be blocked and interoperability with University or College systems is not supported.

If you are running one of the below listed OS or browser versions, please contact your local IT support team or WCNR_IT_Support@mail.colostate.edu . We’ll formulate an action plan and schedule a date for any required upgrades. Getting this done during gaps in the semester can help ensure your computer is ready when you need it.
