We recommend that you visit our Device Registration Pretest webpage prior to arriving on campus to determine if your machine will pass or fail registration when you arrive on campus. If your machine fails the pretest, you will be given suggestions to resolve any issues.
Antivirus software is required for Windows computers, and is highly recommended for Macintosh computers. If you do not have antivirus software installed, IT provides Symantec Endpoint for all students. Just login to the Symantec Antivirus site with your Stonehill credentials, download, and install. Please note that you must type "stonehill\" before your username when logging into the Symantec site (i.e. "stonehill\jsmith").
Devices are re-scanned every 60 days. If you do not connect your device to our network for 60 days, your device is aged out and your device will be rescanned.
If your system fails any of the above tests, you will be given instructions on how to update your system to be in compliance.
