Laptop Software Policy

All students separating from the college are responsible for deleting/removing all institutionally owned software from their laptops upon departure.

You are no longer licensed to use any Olin owned/licensed software including:

  • Olin site licensed software such as Matlab and Solidworks
  • Symantec Endpoint Protection - you should have a personal copy of antivirus software
  • All programs that are licensed for the cloud from Microsoft and Adobe will stop functioning as the licensing will be expired. Be sure to move any cloud files to a more accessible location.

Microsoft Security Essentials is free antivirus/antimalware product provided by Microsoft that should serve most students needs in replacing the institutionally-owned Symantec that comes installed on all Olin-maintained computers.

Please note that all network based applications that connect to a server for a license key will no longer work.
