As a reminder, Information Security for Institutionally Owned Computers (ISR-2) requires Drexel-owned computers to use a supported operating system. With the availability of macOS Sonoma, Drexel supports the three most recent major versions of macOS—macOS Sonoma (14), macOS Ventura (13), and macOS Monterey (12)—and drops support for macOS Big Sur (11). We encourage you to upgrade to remain compliant with ISR-2.

  2. Sign in with Drexel Connect.
