Laptop Hardware and Software Standards – Doctor of Health Administration

All students beginning any tracks of the Doctor of Health Administration program in 2018 must bring to campus a laptop that meets or exceeds college standards, developed to ensure compatibility with existing infrastructure and policy. New students attend a technology orientation and will be assisted with accessing the campus network, email, course materials, software downloads, encryption and mobile device management. You will need a laptop at this time.

Hardware and Software Standards

Almost all required software is available to students at minimal or no charge. Students are highly encouraged to visit the CHP Software webpage.
