STUDENT LAPTOP PROGRAM
We believe that technology is essential to your success! Whether you take online, remote, or in-person classes--you need to have your own laptop. Almost half of all PCCC courses no longer require you to purchase textbooks. All course materials are available electronically. On campus, we are adding more powerful Wi-Fi and converting classrooms to allow you to bring your own laptop. The College is committed to making affordable laptops available through its Bookstore with options for students to use financial aid to cover the cost. If students already have a laptop, it should meet the minimum requirements listed below.
Please note: Students are strongly encouraged to buy a Windows 10 laptop if they do not already own one. While we strive to make our services accessible on multiple devices, a mobile phone will not be sufficient and does not meet the requirements for many instructional activities. Chromebooks also do not yet meet the minimum requirements for all courses.
- Windows 10 (preferred) or MacOS 10.10 or higher
- At least 128 GB of available storage
- 8 GB of RAM
- Intel i3, AMD Ryzen 3, or better
- Wi-Fi adapter (802.11n or better)
Your laptop should have these requirements!
