About

Below are the instructions for submitting a ticket to SOMTech. As of December 4th, 2019, VCU has a new ticketing system based on the Cherwell platform. SOMTech is working with the IT Service Management Office to implement a custom SOMTech interface, but at launch, that is not the case. In order to ensure that your ticket arrives at SOMTech and that SOMTech can provide the most efficient support, we strongly encourage you to follow these instructions and include the requested information in each ticket submitted.
