Returning Student Checklist

Welcome back to Wheaton! Academic and Institutional Technology is looking forward to working with you and is available to assist you with any technology-related questions you might have. Before you return to campus, there are some things you should know.

Be sure to install your computer’s recommended software and security updates to keep your computer running safely and efficiently. Install an antivirus program to keep your work secure and so you will be allowed to connect to the campus network. If you have Windows 8.1 or newer or Mac OSX, your computer already comes with virus protection. Make sure that this software is set to regularly scan your computer.

If you are bringing a Chromecast, wireless printer, or similar device, learn how to connect to the network without degrading your wireless connection.

Update your emergency contact information. In case of emergencies, it’s important that the College be able to contact you on a mobile phone number.

Review the 3 Simple Steps for Cyber Security, learn more about email scams, and check out the winning videos for last year's Cyber Security Video Contest.

Take advantage of the services you have access to as a Wheaton student.

We look forward to seeing you. If you have questions before you return to campus, please contact us or call 630.752.4357 (HELP).
