Windows 11

All eligible ASU computers will need to be updated from Windows 10 to Windows 11 by 12/31/24.

Why: Microsoft will no longer release security updates for Windows 10 in 2025. Upgrading to Windows 11 will help keep our campus safe from cybersecurity threats, as well as your personal information and sensitive files.

When: Starting on June 1st, 2024, Windows 11 will appear in Software Center under the Operating Systems Tab to download and install without admin credentials.  For Lab and TEC classroom eligible computers they will start getting Windows 11 on June 1sst, 2024.  All newly deployed computers will start being imaged with Windows 11 on June 1st, 2024.

What is affected: The main difference will be the User Interface (UI), and how you navigate through your desktop. Overall, Windows 11 is very similar to 10.

We have tested various ASU systems such as Workday, Banner, VPN, etc. and have found no known issues. Some department specific software will need to be individually tested prior to upgrading.
