Computer Requirements

Computers are an integral part of today's educational programs and each student in the adult evening and online programs is expected to have basic computing skills (email, internet research, word processing and spreadsheets) prior to beginning a degree program. You will also need regular access to a computer throughout the course of your program.

For students who wish to utilize their own personal laptop computers, the university provides wireless internet access within each of the five education centers. Students may also use computers available in the computer lab of each education center. The computer lab offers access to the internet, printers and various software programs such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

The Information Technology department has developed a recommended computer configuration as a guide for students who will purchase computers to use while enrolled at Southern Wesleyan University.
