What Is Software Center (SCCM)?

Software Center, also called Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), is an application installed on your UAH-owned Windows computer. It can be used to install several software packages without requiring administrative privileges. Additionally, SCCM checks to ensure your device is compliant with UAH IT policies.

In April 2023, Software Center was updated. Check out this video showcasing the changes!

How do I use SCCM?

SCCM can only be used to install software if it is connected to the campus Active Directory domain. Click here to learn if your computer is joined to an Active Directory.

From your Start Menu, look through your programs list and find the Microsoft System Center folder, then Software Center within it. Alternatively, you can also use the search option near the Start Menu icon in Windows 10 to search for "Software Center".

When you open up Software Center, there should be a bunch of tiles for different software that can be installed.

Click on the software you want to install, then click the blue Install button.

What if the software I want isn't in SCCM?

If th software you want or need isn't listed in SCCM, consider checking Chargerware, UAH's software repository.
