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. Prospective students who do not have access to such a computer can contact the Admissions Office for assistance in purchasing a system.

Minimum Hardware Requirements: Any modern internet connected desktop or laptop computer capable of meeting the below software requirements will be sufficient. While course materials are accessible to mobile devices, access to a desktop or laptop computer is required for completion of assignments and examinations. Some supplemental materials and activities will require a functioning audio device and speakers. 

Reliable and consistent access to the internet is required.

  • Intel® Celeron® 2.0GHz (or AMD® equivalent) Processor
  • 2 Gigabytes of RAM
