The information systems (IS) department supports computing and communication services across the Lancaster Bible College campus. IS provides the services that students use daily to achieve academic success.
As an LBC student, you have online access to all of the resources you need for your coursework. All students are connected to the Internet through a 100Mbps high speed connection. We have 76 wireless access points that cover all buildings on campus, plus outdoor spaces, so you can access the Internet anywhere on campus. If that's not fast enough, you can also access LBC's wired network with a wired connection.
With this program, powered by the Moodle leaning management system, you can access your syllabus, assignments, grades, quizzes, and exams on your class website. Students also use the interactive features of Moodle to collaborate and communicate about class projects and group assignments.
Through the Account Center, you can register for online courses, accept financial aid, pay your bill, and check your grades.
New LBC students are given a web-based email account that they can access from any Internet-connected computer anywhere in the world.
With NetStorage, you can access network files though a web interface from any Internet-connected computer. You will have access to a large amount of storage that can easily be scaled to meet your needs.
LBC has five computer labs and classrooms available to students. Each is equipped with Office 2010.
- Library Lab: 27 computers
- Sebastian Academic Center: 18 computers

To ensure that our network is safe and available for all to use, we certify all computers that utilize LBC's network. The certification process is done by each student using Cisco's NAC (Network Admission Control) to ensure that every student computer meets the necessary specifications.
If your PC is not been certified, you will not be able to use the campus network.
Once your PC is certified, you will be ready for the academic year, and you will also be able to use the wireless network available in all dorms, classrooms, and public areas on campus. Wireless setup instructions will be available for you on registration day.
