Additional Information:

  • Individual courses may have additional software requirements, including audio and video playback, or the use of a specific software application. These will be listed on the program page.
  • Many courses require office productivity software (e.g. word processing, spreadsheet, presentation); Office 365 is available for free while you are a student.
  • While tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices may allow for some completion of course work, they are not guaranteed to work in all areas of the course.
  • We do not recommend taking examinations while using a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, due to compatibility issues.
