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.

Hardware - Intel Pentium(Sandy Bridge) or AMD A6(Trinity) or better


Operating System - Microsoft Windows 10
