Recommended Software for Students
Many software titles are available to TU students for free or at a discounted cost, and SCS offers installation assistance when needed.
Most students find these applications vital for learning, communicating and completing assignments, either while on-campus or virtually. New and returning students should consider installing these apps now to make sure they're ready for when you need to use them.
Your area of study may require additional software, but nearly all Tigers rely on these apps. If you have questions about major-specific software, ask your professor. If you need help, contact OTS Student Computing Services.
