The first step guide of ITC systems (for students/educational and research staff)

Here, we explain the minimum required procedure for students and educational and research staff to use the campus information system to take classes or start educational/research work.

This procedure can also be used from external networks, such as from home etc. When using this procedure from within the university, you can skip several of the steps.

This procedure assumes the following environment. Provided that you are using the latest version of the software, you should not face any issues.
