Blackboard 9 (Bb9) users please use one of the following browsers:
• Mozilla Firefox Browser 3.6

Students are responsible to have Internet service. High speed Internet access is recommended as dial-up may be slow and limited in downloading information and completing online tests. Some courses may contain streaming audio and/or video content.
Use of Public Computers
If using a public library, or other public access computer, students should check to ensure they will have access for the length of time required to complete their tasks and tests.
