These are the system guidelines for student devices. Keep in mind you need to check with your individual program to find what requirements they have that are supplemental to these.

We have broken down the Hardware/Software information into required and recommended. While having a computer that meets the minimum required should work, you may have to install browsers/plugins to work around problems.

Minimum Required

Operating System - Microsoft Windows 7, Apple OSX 10.10 Yosemite

Hardware - Intel Pentium(Haswell) or AMD A6(Carrizo) or better


Operating System - Microsoft Windows 10

Hardware - Intel I3 (Skylake) or AMD A8(RavenRidge) or better

Mobile Devices

We require students to have some form of laptop or desktop, however these are what we recommend if you chose for a supplemental device for classwork.

Operating System - Microsoft Windows 10, Android 6.0, Apple IOS10

Additional Software

There are also browsers and plugins that are required/recommended to access coursework and classroom resources.

  • Adobe Reader
  • Adobe Flash Player
  • Microsoft Silverlight
  • Browser - We recommend a secondary browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome
  • PasswordManager - We strongly recommend a password manager such as BitWarden or Lastpass, this will make it easier to use a secure password on all your accounts, including your ManhattanTech account.

Microsoft Office

Manhattan Tech provides 5 free copies of Microsoft Office, find out how to get yours here.

Wireless - We Implement WPA2-Enterprise with 802.1x, your device must support this or you will be unable to join the wireless. See the image below for what your settings should look like when joining the wireless.
