Technology Renewal

The Technology Renewal Program is a process through which standard IC computers and networked printers are replaced on a rotating cycle. The purpose of the program is to ensure that the majority of these devices remain up-to-date and capable of running current applications and any future upgrades or new applications anticipated during the projected life cycle of the device. It is also an important component of preventative maintenance to ensure that these computers and printers can be adequately supported. The Ithaca, LA, and London campuses are all covered under the program.

New Faculty Information

In order to get started, you will need to attend a new hire information session with Human Resources. This session includes information about getting started with various accounts that pertain to your role.


At your new hire session you will be provided with your username and a default password for Parnassus, the Human Resources and Financial Services system. The first thing you should do is log into Parnassus and change the default password to something that only you know. Parnassus is available through the myHome IC services menu.


Your Netpass username and password are used to access many systems and services at IC, including logging onto campus computers and accessing the Mentor file server. This account is activated using your Parnassus username and the last 6 digits of your college ID. The Human Resource office provides you with this information at the new hire session.
