SPH Laptop Policy
Starting in academic year, 2013-2014, students are required to own a laptop meeting the campus minimum requirements. The university provides 24/7 computer support as well as on-site computer repair for PC and Mac computers purchased through the campus CCI program. Our faculty members increasingly are incorporating a wide variety of computer-based technologies into course content. Some courses include presentations on student laptops, use of laptops for taking notes or accessing the web, and use of social media tools, polling tools or other course-specific software during class. Students also use laptops for sharing group projects and other assignments. In short, laptops have become essential tools for 21st century students.
If you intend to run SAS (required for some courses) on your laptop you must have a Professional or higher version of Microsoft Windows. SAS will not install on a Home Edition Windows operating system.
For students interested in Mac laptop options, please use the configurations of the current MacBook Pro models as guidelines for recommended specifications. Current models available through CCI are found here: CCI Laptops.
Note for Mac users: SAS is only compatible with a Windows operating system (Professional or higher). A dual-boot system (BootCamp) or VM software is required for Mac users installing SAS. The Windows operating system is available to students through campus IT services.
