Will I Need Special Computer Equipment to Learn Online?

Last updated on November 15, 2017

The technology used in most online degree programs only requires a relatively fast computer with a high-speed internet connection. Some schools specify that certain Windows and Mac operating systems or computers with certain processing speeds be used.

If special software is required, it can typically be downloaded from the university’s website for free. Some schools also offer software such as word processors and anti-virus programs at a discounted student rate.
