ITS: ServiceDesk


Check out our Self-Service website. Here you can submit a new question or report a problem, view your past tickets, and browse or search our FAQ knowledgebase. Our online support site gives you yet another way to connect with the ServiceDesk. To learn more, you can view the ITS Self-Service TechTorial video.


Students and employees are encouraged to call the ITS ServiceDesk with technology questions and problems. When you call or email the CCAC ServiceDesk, the analyst will log your issue into the Service Desk software, create a ServiceDesk "ticket" and assign you a ticket number. This ticket is used to track your problem to its resolution.

If the agent cannot solve your problem immediately on the phone, the ticket will be assigned to a technician at your campus or an analyst/engineer. The ServiceDesk software allows your problem, via the ServiceDesk ticket, to be tracked through each phase of the resolution process.
