Laboratory Animal Science Program Computer Standards
These computer standards are set for the incoming students August 2017. Each student must have a personal lap top 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 the LAS Master’s Program.
All computer related support, troubleshooting, and updates will be the student's responsibility; it is highly suggested that a service plan be purchased.
If you are eligible for federal student aid and you provide required information, you may be able to increase your financial aid budget to be reimbursed over the academic year for the cost of your computer. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-446-5804.
