Getting Connected

Below you’ll find tips for getting your device connected to the Internet.

Please Note: Because security protocols differ among devices, Florida Southern College cannot guarantee connection for all streaming devices. FSC Information Technology Services will allow access based on the device’s MAC address, however, if a student is unable to connect with a particular device there is an option to purchase an individual BrightHouse connection by calling 863.327.1009 (select 0 when asked for a phone number). Students are responsible for their BrightHouse bill and stopping and/or transferring services when departing the college.
