Labs


Computer, Science and other Labs

Sometimes students need a little extra support and Cochise College has resources to provides students with tools and assistance for success. Computer labs, tutoring and science labs are available throughout the district. Services offered, hours and contact information can be found on the page below.

Computer Labs

All computer lab work stations are connected to the Internet and have been configured with college-approved and licensed software. The basic software package includes Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer and Adobe Acrobat Reader. Other licensed software packages are installed on as-needed basis. Check with the lab help desk for information about specialized software installed on select computers.

Students are not allowed to install software on lab computers. Control software removes anything installed when the computer reboots.

Cochise Colleges utilizes a cloud system for printing. Documents and files printed from computers in our labs and libraries on campus can be picked up at any WEPA Website (Wireless Everywhere. Print Anywhere) kiosk.

  • Black and white prints are $.08 each
  • Color prints are $.35 each.

Students
Cloud printing is integrated with student ID cards. After sending a print job, swipe your ID at any kiosk to select which jobs to print and which jobs to discard. After confirming the print job, the kiosk will print. Every student is provided $.80 per credit hour of print credits each semester. Add money to your WEPA account through campus business offices or by using a credit card.

Non-students
Community members who access campus computer labs can print to WEPA kiosks either by using a WEPA prepaid card or by swiping a credit or debit card. There is a 40-cent fee per credit/debit card transaction.

  • Use the Internet for research and fun.
  • Do not visit pornographic sites or attempt to download pictures from such sites.
  • Do not become violent toward the equipment or personnel.
  • No eating, drinking or smoking.
  • Children are not allowed in the labs on a regular or routine basis. If it is necessary for a parent to bring children to a computer lab on an occasional and limited basis only, lab aides may grant permission, if space allows. Parents are responsible for supervising children.
  • Copying software from lab computers is illegal.
  • Do not install anything on lab computers. System protection prevents permanent installation of software by anyone other than college personnel.
  • Anyone not adhering to the above operating rules will be banned from further lab use.
