AllAccess Virtual Computing Environment

What is AllAccess?


All Access is a virtual computing environment that provides access to free service for active SLCC students and current faculty and staff members.  This allows them to access several college licensed applications from any web-enabled device (PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet, etc.). This service works both on and off campus.


AllAccess is versatile enough where you can start work at the college, disconnect your session, and then reconnect and continue working from another device at home or other location where a connection to the internet exists. The great thing is that your device doesn’t have to be new or have a ton of computing power to run these applications as AllAccess runs them in a cloud computing environment on the SLCC servers, so SLCC servers do most of the heaving lifting.
