Computer Software/Hardware Checklist

Students who take online courses need reasonable computer competence and Internet skills to be successful. Students should have daily access to a computer (preferably at home). Online courses also require a minimum time commitment of 10-15 hours each week of the quarter. Skills specific to individual courses may also be required; for example, proficiency with a word processing package may be needed for an online English course.

NOTICE: Some online/hybrid courses use books that require an "access key." Access keys may be purchased with new textbooks or directly from the publisher. It is your responsibility to check with the instructor of your online course to determine if an access key is required. Please do this before you purchase your books for your online/hybrid classes.
