CUMC students must not configure automatic email forwarding of their institutional email to an external
account including Gmail, Yahoo mail, etc. Severe academic, legal and financial penalties may be incurred if sensitive data is
released, see the Email Use page for details.
2. Prepare your computer
Any computer using the CUMC wired or wireless networks must:
Be virus and malware-free with working, updated security software.
The Safe Computing pages can help you with these steps, including installing the Columbia licensed Symantec Endpoint program.
TIP: be sure to see the Software Downloads page for a list of free and discounted programs including Microsoft Office.
Wired: before arriving you can submit the Bradford Network Access Control form using the computer you will be connecting to the campus wired network.
To register you must run a small, non-permanent program that scans the computer to verify it meets basic CUMC security requirements. See How Bradford Works for details.
