The campus ISP (Information Security and Policy) group
plans to begin enforcement actions for out-of-date Mac OS X operating
systems starting April 1, 2016.
While Apple does not officially acknowledge the end of support for Mac
OS X operating systems, it appears Apple is only supporting
Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) and Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan).

Starting on April 1, 2016, if the campus ISP group detects that your
device is running an out-of-date Mac OS X operating system, they
will issue a ticket and you will have five days to respond and either
fix the vulnerability or apply for an exception to the
campus “Minimum Security Standards for Networked Devices.”
In general, Mac OS X 10.9 software and applications are
compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 and Mac OS X 10.11.
Upgrading from Mac OS X 10.9 to Mac OS X 10.10 and Mac OS X 10.11
