Computer Requirements

The University believes evidence of computer literacy is required to earn a credible graduate degree in any discipline. Technology also plays an important part in a student’s ability to communicate with administration, faculty, and fellow students. Accordingly, all students must have access to a computer with the minimum specifications set forth below. Prospective students who do not have access to such a computer can contact the Admissions Office for assistance in purchasing a system.

Students are not expected to be computer experts. However, all students must have a working knowledge of Microsoft Word®, access to the Internet, and e-mail.

Minimum Hardware and Software Requirements:

• A Personal Computer, Notebook or MAC® with a web browser and antivirus protection.
• Microsoft Office®. *
• A dependable Internet Service Provider.
• A personal email account.
• Adobe Acrobat Reader®.
(Available at no cost when downloaded from the Internet)

*Substantial discounts are often available to students on software purchases. Additional information is available through the Admissions Office.

MAC® system users must be able to work with Microsoft Office® applications including WORD® and Excel® and assume responsibility for compatibility.
