How Customer Support Works for You

Route all calls, faxes and emails through Customer Support to avoid risk of delayed response.

  • Reported issues are logged in a call-tracking system and routed to the right consultant or analyst. If a consultant or analyst cannot return your call promptly, the Customer Support coordinator will notify you of the delay.
  • The Customer Support coordinator monitors requests throughout the day. For each call, fax or email message received, the coordinator creates a Support Request and assigns it to the appropriate consultant or analyst.
  • The consultant or analyst will contact you and give you a Support Request number. Use this number when making additional calls related to the same issue, or when faxing or emailing any other information regarding the issue.

Customer support or campus IT?

Your campus IT department is often your first point of contact for system problems. Before contacting SBCTC-ITD Customer Support , follow the policies and procedures to get help at your campus.

Campus procedures vary, but your college IT staff can often resolve log-in or connectivity problems and may have assigned application (FAID, FMS, PPMS, SMS) coordinators who can help with local processing issues.

  • College name and campus
  • Your name, telephone number and email address

  • Error message and number (screen prints can be faxed or emailed to Customer Support )
