I just altered your user name to remove the email portion for your privacy and safety.   I also moved this to a better section for support and abbreviated the headline in order to fit.

You will have to log out and back in again to answer.

Isn't that between you and the college?   I assume they have some arrangement with McAfee, did you ask them?

I agree I would have thought they would have had a deal with Mcafee or another AV. If it was a new laptop they usually come with free 12mth trials of some software.

As a footnote, as all account matters are dealt with off this board anyway, you may want to speak with Customer Service directly.  It's free of charge by phone or online chat.

They could maybe clarify what's going on in the account, see link below.
