To participate in any distance education course you will need to travel to a campus computer lab, or you need to have access to your own computer and Internet Service Provider. High-speed access is recommended, as you may have some files or online programs that will not work well on a dial-up connection. Technology requirements are subject to change. Consult your course syllabus for specific requirements needed for each course.
Students have full access to the campus computer labs. See the lab hours & locations.
If you are using a personal device, you must be able to meet the specifications listed below. Students have access to free anti-viral software and may download the latest Microsoft Office Suite. IT staff can assist you in connecting to and troubleshooting problems with your personal device and the Fort Lewis network. Find out more about bringing your own device.
