Office 365 for students, faculty and staff

Since June 2014, we migrated our email system to Office 365 using the Microsoft "cloud".

Students will have an IAUPR School of Optometry email on the "domain", while Faculty and Staff will have email under the "domain".

Since the Office 365 service includes the software download for students, while logging thru the "365 portal", they have the opportunity to download Office software for their computers. Faculty/Staff should ask CIT for HUP (Home Use Program) for adquiring Office for their personal use.

For every individual of the IAUPR School of Optometry the login process is the same:

  1. Login at school webpage (email link at top-right) or at
  2. When you login, it will ask you to create a new password. After setting the password up, the email is accessed by the "Outlook" link on the top blue bar.

For mobile phones and/or tablet access, please refer to the following guides:

•        For iOS setup (iPhone/iPad) setup:

•         For Android setup:

*NOTA: Para que la página de validación de método de pago (luego de que reciba el email) le permita escoger a Puerto Rico, debe haber seleccionado a Puerto Rico en la página inicial de (Verificación de elegibilidad).  Al escoger Puerto Rico, Microsoft asume que el programa “Home Use Program” (HUP) se enviará/utilizará en ESPAÑOL, verifique que así desea recibir el software ANTES de proseguir a la verificación de pago e ingreso de dirección del usuario, etc.   Si desea recibir el software en INGLÉS, debe asegurarse de seleccionar ese lenguaje antes de proseguir la orden (y eliminar la versión en Español), tan pronto ingresa al “HUP Store”, cuyo enlace recibirá por correo electrónico al validar su elegibilidad de participar en el programa HUP. Cualquier duda se pueden comunicar con el CIT.

** NOTA ADICIONAL: Problemas de envío, descarga, recibo de copia de respaldo en DVD, etc. una vez completado el proceso de compra, deben ser referidas al correo de servicio al cliente de Microsoft que recibirá en su confirmación por correo electrónico una vez completada la compra. El CIT de Optometría no puede brindar apoyo una vez se complete el proceso de compra, ya que Microsoft requiere validación del usuario que compró el software utilizando datos confidenciales que el comprador ingresa al completar la orden. Por esta razón todo apoyo de ese momento en adelante es manejado por Microsoft directamente.

Apartments Internet Access


The IAUPR School of Optometry apartments have Internet service provided by the School.

From November 22, 2013 the internet access has to be configured/requested at the CIT office.

To have access, you need to have configured a PPPoE connection, and it requires an username/password assigned by CIT. This access ONLY allows for a single device connection, so it is extremely important that if you connect to the Internet thru a router, that you bring the router to CIT for configuration or instructions on how to configure. 

Respondus updates

The Respondus© Lockdown Browser is just one of many tools students need to have installed on their computers to be able to complete online examinations on the BlackBoard Learning System. Since this software is updated often, the CIT will publish the latest update for Windows and Mac computers in the Public shared folder. 

You will find it by going to Public folder -> Laptop Tools -> Respondus.  

 If for any reason the update is not available in Public, the official download link for our School is:

You SHOULD NOT download the Respondus Lockdown Browser from any other link!
This download is customized specifically for IAUPR School of Optometry. Any other link will not work with IAUPR Blackboard system! 

Be advised that Respondus servers sometimes cut the download short (disconnection by idle time), in those occasions the download is incomplete

Windows Computers

You can install the new version over the old one, when the Respondus setup initiates, just select Reinstall / Update from the options shown before installing. 

Special note for Mac computers

To reinstall on Mac computers it is advised that you uninstall the existing Respondus (Go to Applications folder and drag Respondus Lockdown Browser to Trash bin), EMPTY the Trash bin and THEN install the new version.

This is the most reliable way to be sure you have the latest version installed.
