Computer/Technology Skill Requirement

You will need some additional free software for enhanced web browsing. Ensure that you download the free versions of the software.
At a minimum, you must have Microsoft Office 2003, XP, 2007 or OpenOffice. Microsoft Office is the standard office productivity software utilized by faculty, students and staff. Microsoft Word is the standard word processing software, Microsoft Excel is the standard spreadsheet software and Microsoft PowerPoint is the standard presentation software. Copying and pasting, along with attaching/uploading documents for assignment submission, will also be required.
