Apple newest operating system, macOS Catalina

Date: 05-28-2020

Apple released its latest operating system (macOS 10.15 - Catalina) this past fall.   ITS has determined that this is not a critical update and upgrading is NOT recommended, necessary, or required. Many applications and personal printers will no longer work after the upgrade. 

 ITS will continue to monitor the status on the apps below and once these are compatible   with Catalina we will notify you.

Please review the following table to understand our recommendation:
