The Independent Learning Center (ILC) comprises three computer labs that provide currently-enrolled students with approximately 120 Internet-enabled computer stations as well as audio/video viewing stations for other media. Students may use the labs and the media collections to complete assignments for many of their courses.
You should already know how to use a computer and the software you need, as only basic technical assistance is available from ILC staff.
The ILC is located in the lower level of the Learning Resource Center in rooms R105, R106, and R107.
