Technical Requirements

You Must Have a Computer!
It may seem obvious, but access to a computer with a fast internet connection is a critical requirement for success in this online course.  If your computer breaks down, you’ll need a back-up plan — fast!  The college has several computer labs that you can use in an emergency (while the guys at the genius bar restore your hard drive).  Just keep in mind — a broken computer is not an excuse for failure to keep up with course work!
