Contacting OIT for Support:
For non-emergency support, the most effective method of requesting assistance is to send an email to the information technology department at it-workorder@southark.edu as this will automaticly create a workorder and notice the entire IT team of your request.

Should the email option not be available to you, calling extention 120 (870.864.7120) will automatically forward your voice message to every team member's email inbox.

For emergency technical support, the most effect way to reach the team is to call the College operator and ask her to radio the the team member(s) on duty. Shoud the operator not be available, security officers and physical plant staff can contact the team.
