Students taking courses through the Global Campus need regular access to a desktop or laptop computer with stable Internet access. Because your computer is your connection to your courses—essentially the way you “go to class”—you also need to have a backup plan should your primary computer become unavailable. Check the Technology Requirements to be sure your computer is up to date, and review the information about protecting your computer on the Tech Support page.
Browse for courses in the Schedules of Classes. Be sure to select the More Information link associated with the course to learn what materials are required. Many course information pages also provide links to syllabi near the bottom of the page. Please note: If information is not yet listed on the course information page, be sure to check back.
Review the Academic Calendar to become familiar with critical deadlines. Select Global Campus and the applicable term to view the calendar.
