Each student must have a personal computer capable of running the necessary software and applications used in our curriculum. The standards listed below are the minimum necessary for a student to successfully participate in this online program. All computer related support, troubleshooting, and updates will be the student’s responsibility. Purchase of a service plan is highly suggested. Students eligible for federal financial aid may be able to increase their financial aid budget to cover the cost of a computer.
