All law students will need to access the SCU-Student network for wireless access. If you get "quarantined" while trying to log in, all Mac & PC computers are now required to have an "Anti-Virus software& "Safe Connect Policy Key Policy" installed to access the SCU network.


*If you have the old SCU Symantec software (Yellow Shield), you will need to uninstall it.

** We highly recommend the licensed version of Sophos for SCU students.

*** If you still cannot get to the Internet after install AV and think you have been flagged as network "quarantined," then please contact the IT Service Center at 408-55-5700. You may be asked to stop by their service center which is located in the main campus library and learning commons.
