Software Installation Request Form (SIRF) and Software Continuance Form (SCF)

The Software Installation Request Form (SIRF) is used to request course-related instructional software to be added to computers under the control of Student Computing Services (SCS) in either a Technology Enhanced Classroom (TEC) or an Open Computer Lab. Commercial software requires proper licensing and must be purchased by the university. The Software Continuance Form (SCF) is to be used to request that course-related instructional software be kept in its installed location beyond the time request on the original SIRF or to inform SCS that the software is sill being used. The SIRF and SCF forms can be obtained on this page.

To begin the SIRF process:

1. Read all the important information on pages 1, 2 and 4. Note the submission Deadlines, General Information and General Policies. Then, fill out the SIRF where applicable.
2. Save your completed SIRF and upload it using the Request Service button at the right.
3. Print out the completed SIRF and obtain the necessary signatures.
4. Print out the licensing terms for the requested software.
5. Put the requested software on a CD, DVD or USB drive.
6. Per the requirements of the SIRF, submit all printed and signed materials as well as the software to room B107 to the attention of Student Computing Services.

The SIRF process is considered complete when steps 2 through 6 have been completed.
