Apple macOS 10.14 Mojave Now Supported

Update: March 21, 2019

Apple macOS Mojave (10.14) is the fifteenth major release of macOS, Apple's desktop operating system for Apple computers. Released in 2018, it is the successor to High Sierra.

SCS Computing Facilities (SCSCF) offers support for macOS Mojave. It is included with our baseline software offering along with support for issues relating to the operating system and its functionality.

Update: If you currently use an SCS-supported Mac, you can now upgrade your mac via Self Service. Self Service has an installation package available to upgrade to Mojave. If you do not see this package available to you, please contact us, as there may be conflicting or incompatible software/hardware conditions on your computer. 

To request your current Mac be upgraded to Mojave please go to our Computer Equipment Registration Management page. Proceed to the Search, Update and Remove Equipment Support page.

For more information on minimum system requirements for macOS Mojave and Mojave-capable Apple computer models, please visit Apple's website.
