TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT & REQUIREMENTS: RESOURCES FOR DISTANCE STUDENTS

Online students are required to meet technology prerequisites.

As the essence of an online delivery program is the ability to participate virtually, there are certain technological requirements that are prerequisites for students’ participation in online coursework. Students need to confirm their ability to have access to specific hardware, software, and network requirements to enroll in online classes. Students not able to fulfill these requirements will not be able to succeed in an online format. Requirements include:

  •  Desktop or laptop computer (Surface, iPads and other tablets are not acceptable)
  •  Broadband Internet access (above 5 Mbps required)
  •  Up-to-date virus protection software
  •  Webcam (most laptops have built-in webcams)
  •  Headset with microphone

Important Note: Students must have full administrator access to their computer. This means that students may not be able to use a company provided computer as they often restrict some aspect of the computer system necessary for online operations.

In addition to the above requirements, it is strongly recommended to follow the guidelines below:

Minimum Hardware Recommendations

  •  Intel processor i5 or higher or similar
  •  14.1″ Widescreen Display
  •  Memory – 8.0GB
