Effective April 8, Microsoft will no longer provide the following support for Windows XP:

  • Additional new or enhanced device support
  • Software functionality and compatibility upgrades

As a result, NC State plans to remove these machines from the campus network on April 30, unless they have been approved as part of the Windows XP exception process.

Campus departments should immediately begin identifying and upgrading their computers running Windows XP or any earlier versions of Windows. OIT will provide information to assist with the identification of these machines along with detailed information for the exception by Jan. 31.

If you have any questions, please contact the NC State Help Desk at or 919.515.HELP (4357).
