If you are a BU graduate or undergraduate student interested in using the SCC, its batch processing nodes, and additional disk space, you need to be added to a Research Computing Project.  You can speak with your adviser about adding you to his/her project (or creating a new one). Alternatively, you may contact help@scc.bu.edu and inquire about a start-up account with access to the batch nodes, a small CPU allocation and limited time duration. Those students who do not need access to the batch nodes and would like access for a longer duration, may be interested in a Linux Virtual Lab account.
