Here is a collection of information about things on the Kirkwood Community College Campuses that you should know about!

Kirkwood Fall

Add-Drop

Learn more about it here:
http://www.kirkwood.edu/catalog/2014-2015/adds-drops-and-withdrawal-of-registration.htm If the class has not met yet students can call One Stop to add the course.  For any class that has met, students will need to fill out the form.  For Distance Learning classes, their policies differ so contact them directly.

Add-Drop Tuition Swap

We no longer give a full refund to students who both drop a class and add a class in the second week of classes. This is sometimes called the second week “wash” or “tuition swap” – please remember the refund is now 50% for all drops in the second week for 16-week classes. Find Full Refund Policy: http://www.kirkwood.edu/catalog/current/refund-of-tuition_0.htm

ATM

There is only one ATM available on the Cedar Rapids campus. It’s located near the cafeteria by Student Life and US Bank. On the Iowa City campus there is one available next to the One Stop Office.

Bus Passes for Free

The EagleCard Office and Rec Center can attach free bus stickers to the EagleCards that will allow students to ride Cedar Rapids bus routes 7 and 11 for free. You MUST have the sticker attached to your EagleCard each year before you can ride free. The year runs from August to August. The stickers do not cost anything, you must simply be an enrolled Kirkwood student.

Computer Lab in Cedar Rapids— 131 Nielsen Hall

The Allsop Computer lab in 131 Nielsen Hall is the main lab on the Cedar Rapids campus. It houses 106 PCs and 2 iMacs, two copier/printers plus two scanners. All programs needed for classes are offered on these computers, but not every computer has every program, ask at the help desk if you need a specific program so they can direct you to the right computers. No classes or labs are scheduled in the quiet study areas. The walk-in lab is used for student public usage for research and homework. Students may reserve a computer at least one day ahead by calling 398-5606 or coming to the front counter. Students are required to swipe their Eagle card upon entering/exiting the computer labs. No food or drinks are allowed in the computer labs. Computer lab hours are subject to change during inclement weather. Same policies and guidelines apply as in the computer classrooms.

Computer Lab in Iowa City

The Iowa City computer lab is located next to the library in Room 107.

EagleCard

Permanent EagleCard is your official Kirkwood identification. Get it after you register for credit classes. Your Eaglecard is also your LIBRARY CARD. Carry it with you at all times while you are on campus and you’ll avoid a lot of headaches with different departments and you’ll get all of your student benefits. (Library Note: We have some items, such as the laptops, that we only check out if you have your physical card in hand.)

Present a government-issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc) at one of these locations:

  • EagleCard office (Nielsen Hall – Room 131 which is within the Allsop Computer Lab)             Phone 319-398-5411, ext. 5680
  • Kirkwood Rec Center (main campus)
  • Iowa City Campus Bookstore
  • Any county center office

The EagleCard Office is open the same hours as the Allsop Computer Lab. EagleCards can also be printed at the Rec Center on the Main Campus and at the Iowa City Bookstore.

EagleCash

EagleCash is money that you put on your Eaglecard that you can use in various places around campus rather than carry cash.

EagleNet

EagleNet is Kirkwood’s student information services portal. Access a variety of info including class schedules, degree audits, and more.

Password Reset

Access this self-service web page to establish or https://kirkwoodlibrary.wordpress.com/2015/08/07/kirkwood-passwords/ for your K-number login.

Print Quota

Registered students will be given a $36 print/copy ration of play money per semester.  This is merely a form to ration and is NOT real money either from the college or from any fee students pay. It could as easily be known as points or coupons, etc. As students print or copy, 5 cents will be deducted for each black and white page, and 10 cents will be deducted for each color page. Access this page to check your current balance.

Student Email

The Kirkwood student email system is the primary tool for official communication from the college. All current Kirkwood students are expected to have a k# (college id) and a student email account. Important information from your department, as well as notifications from advising, enrollment and financial aid, will NOT be sent via postal mail or to a personal e-mail address, but will be sent to your student e-mail. The format of your Kirkwood student email address is: firstname-lastname@student.kirkwood.edu (Example: joe-smith@student.kirkwood.edu) If your first and last name are being used already, a number will be added to your email address to make it unique. Upon graduation or transfer to another institution, student email accounts are deactivated (the following August 31st). Any saved documents and/or emails will not be accessible after that date. Upon registration for at least one credit class, students will be provided a student email account. (Library Note: We’ve discovered that sometimes students have issues with attachments from the various free e-mail sites – Yahoo, G-Mail, Hotmail, etc. – if an attachment absolutely, positively has to get there we recommend using your Kirkwood e-mail to send it.) Find the IT FAQs for Student e-mail: https://www.kirkwood.edu/site/index.php?p=33981

Student Help Desk (for computer questions)

The Student Help Desk is ready to help you with your login questions. Conveniently located in the Allsop Computer Lab – 131 Nielsen Hall. Call them at 319-398-7624 or 1-800-634-6581. Among the IT services are: Campus Wireless, EagleCash, EagleNet, eLearning/Talon, Passwords, Print Quota, and Student e-mail. Find their FAQ sheet linked here:
https://kirkwoodlibrary.wordpress.com/2015/08/26/student-tech-resources/

Student Print Quota

Registered students will be given a free $36 print/copy ration of play money per semester. NOTE:  This is NOT real money. It is a ration system to help control the amount of printing. This is NOT from any real money fee or any money payment made by the college. NO charge for $36 was added to your tuition bill. NO unused portion will be returned to you. You can NOT spend it anywhere on campus for anything other than copies or prints. It will roll over, so if you don’t spend any of your print ration fall semester, spring semester you will start with $72 and so on. Any accumulated print ration will be wiped out at the start of fall semester when everyone is reset to $36 in play money as a ration again.

As students print or copy, five cents will be deducted for each black and white page, and 10 cents will be deducted for each color page. At the end of each semester any unused play money will roll over until you get to the end of summer semester. At the beginning of fall semester all accounts will be wiped clean and you’ll start the fall with $36 in play money toward printing again. The amount is expressed as dollars and cents because if you run out of ration, you can add real money to your account. Unlike print ration dollars any real money you add to your account will NOT be wiped out in the fall. The amount left in this account is referred to across the system by the correct accounting term of BALANCE. Do NOT panic! This is the balance you HAVE in the account (like a checking account), NOT an amount owed (like a credit card).

When the students print documents, they will see a pop-up that will inform them of the cost of that print job and their remaining balance. At that point they will confirm that they want to print it. If the student sends a job to the printer that is more than 24 pages, they will see an additional dialogue box asking them to confirm that they want to print that much.

When the students use their k# to login to the copier, they will see their name and their current balance on the display pad.

To find out your current balance, add real money to your account (which will never vanish, like the play money ration does), or to dispute a print charge, go to:
https://www.kirkwood.edu/print

Talon (eLearning)

Talon is a suite of online tools that facilitate online classes. Instructors in face-to-face courses often deliver materials and extend your learning with Talon. Most online courses operate fully within Talon or at least use it as a frame or portal to get you to the materials you need and to turn in assignments. (Library Note: Often the first thing we suggest for people having Talon problems is trying a different browser, like Firefox or Chrome. Try that first.)
You can check with the student helpdesk, but you may be directed to the help line through Talon which is available 24/7 at 1-877-478-7074. If you have questions about coursework, contact your instructor.

Vending Machine Issues

If a vending machine takes your money or if you have another vending machine issue, in Cedar Rapids report to Student Life on the 2nd floor of Iowa Hall across from the bank by the cafeteria. In Iowa City report it at the One Stop office.

Veterans

Be sure to check out all the resources on campus including the Veterans Lounge.
http://www.kirkwood.edu/va

Veterans in Iowa City are eligible for all benefits but they do not have a lounge.

Wireless

Free WiFi is available inside of every Kirkwood building.

Meet your Librarians, your Biggest Fans!

Tags

, , , ,

Movin’ and Shakin’, Kirkwood’s annual carnival of campus information, returns on Monday, August 24th (noon – 3PM), the very first day of fall semester. Come and greet your librarians at our very popular “wheel of fortune” booth, set up at the center of Kirkwood’s main campus .

Why is it popular? First of all, we are one of the few booths to have a canopy to provide you much needed shade on a hot summer afternoon. Secondly, you will have a chance to spin our wheel and win prizes like much needed school supplies and yummy candy. But most importantly, it gives you a chance to get to know us, your librarians, who are your biggest supporters in making your fall semester successful.

What more could you ask for?

Kirkwood Passwords

Tags

, ,

Most student passwords were expired in late July. That means you will not be able to access things on the Kirkwood network until you change your password. That means it’s time to create a new password.

All Kirkwood passwords must include an uppercase letter, a lowercase letter, and a number. It must have at least 6 characters and not more than 20. You can’t reuse a password. Your password may not contain any part of your name or k number. Make sure you choose a password that you haven’t used before. Kirkwood offers these tips on creating a strong password.

Change your password here:
https://www.kirkwood.edu/site/index.php?d=206&p=2259&t=2

An option on the password screen is to create a security question or you will have to answer that security question in order to change your password if you set it up before. You have to match what you choose keystroke for keystroke so be careful what you choose. For instance, if your question is “What’s your favorite restaurant?” and you give the answer McDonalds – MacDonalds, McDonald’s, MickeyD’s, MCDONALDS, etc. won’t be considered correct by the computer.

New Books: Agriculture and Agribusiness

, , ,

A Quick and Easy Scheduling Tool: Doodle

Tags

, , , ,

This is one of those things that might end up on the tip of your tongue. You know you’ve used an online system to schedule the best times with a group before, but you can’t remember what it’s called or where to find it.

The tool you might be looking for is Doodle:
http://doodle.com

Doodle

Anyone can use this free system without creating an account. Just enter the information about your meeting, possible dates and times, and if you want to e-mail it to people – their e-mails. Otherwise you can just send around the link. This system is much easier than dealing with a flood of e-mails trying to set up a time.

You probably have used it already, as a meeting attendee if not someone setting it up, but remember the next time you need to schedule a meeting and can’t remember the name of that program, that website, that ap, you can find it here.
