Student Technology Center Virtual Lab

Welcome to the Student Technology Center Virtual Lab

The online Student Technology Center (STC) Virtual Lab provides students access to their normal computer related student resources from anywhere on all popular platforms, at any time. The STC Virtual Lab service is available to students during, as well as after normal business hours.

Within this environment, on each student's virtual desktop, there is an online Chat icon, which provides help through a CHAT feature. This feature is to assist students with basic questions about how to perform a task within any of the Microsoft products ( Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) and to help answer basic questions about an assignment, unless it is a test or quiz.
