Computer Requirements & Support

Computer Requirements

Students taking online or hybrid courses at Porterville College are expected to have a computer with a modern operating system, and a modern web browser. Students must also have access to a reliable internet connection, preferably a broadband connection. Students may also use the computers at the Porterville College campus, located in the computer commons or in the library. Students may wish to occasionally use their mobile device to access some elements of their online or hybrid course. However, mobile access may not be supported for every aspect of a course, so having an Internet capable computer is still a necessity for online and hybrid students. Some classes may have additional requirements.

Before enrolling in a class, check the course description for the CRN you want to take, in the online schedule. To see the course description, click on the CRN for the course you are interested in, as shown in the following image.
