As planning continues for fall semester and beyond, Information Technology Services has been working to ensure the best possible learning environments.
Here are a few important technology considerations to plan for now:
- Online Computer Labs. This service is available to all students and will help facilitate access to the software you may need for your classwork. By connecting to a remote service, students can “sit” at a campus computer from anywhere with internet access and will be able to use most of the software available in the on-campus computer labs. Explore this service here.
- Laptop recommendations. We encourage all students to have a laptop in order to maximize access and availability of computing resources. In order to ensure your laptop is capable of meeting the general computing specifications recommended by our technology support team, and/or has the performance requirements specified by the department for your major, view the general computing specifications here. Major-specific requirements, if specified, can be found on the department’s website for your major.
- Financial assistance. We understand that some students may not have the funding available to purchase a laptop without assistance. The Mountaineer Emergency Fund can assist eligible students with emergency needs for college success, including technology expenses.
If you have additional questions about technology needs for fall, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 828-262-6266 or firstname.lastname@example.org, Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
