If you have a university-managed or personal-owned Apple computer, you can now upgrade to Monterey. Click here to find out if your computer can be upgraded to Monterey. (To get information about your Mac, just click on the Apple menu, located at the top left-hand corner of your screen, and then select About This Mac.)

We recommend upgrading prior to the start of the spring semester so you have enough time to familiarize yourself with Monterey’s features and functions.
