General Information

1.5 Computer Requirements

Athabasca University has developed standard computer requirements for its students. It is assumed that students have access to a computer, printer, and the Internet. As well, email is the most accepted form of communication with your tutor and other areas of the university. Upon graduation students should have a specific level of computer skills, many of which can be acquired while completing distance learning courses.

Even students who are registered in courses with few online materials will benefit immensely from the research capabilities of a computer and the Internet. Athabasca University’s Library and most of our student services resources are based on Internet access. Some courses require more specific hardware and software, and this is noted on the course syllabus.

You are responsible for the computer communications costs, such as long-distance telephone charges and a subscription to an Internet Service Provider, or any other communications service requirement.
