Web-Based Scripps Networking Installation

Welcome to Scripps College Information Technology’s web-based networking installation site. From here you can install everything you need to get your computer set up with networking software OR IT staff is available to assist you during New Student Orientation (NSO).

Before you self install: You must change your Novell network password prior to installing our software; there are instructions on how to do this in the residence hall computer labs.

Not all installers are accessible when you are off campus. When you are on campus, here is how you connect to the Claremont Wireless.

Users who have older versions of the software will need to update it to the latest version.
