Keep in mind that access with the very minimum requirements will work -- faster Internet connections, faster computers, and more RAM will certainly be of benefit. Additionally, you may find it handy to have a printer for your own use.

Computer Software Requirements for South Central Online Courses

South Central Online students should have access to basic software tools for word processing. SCC recommends using Microsoft Word (Windows or Macintosh version), which is the application our faculty and staff have at their disposal.

Maintain all software applications at their most current level. Some courses may require computer software as part of the requirements for the course (e.g., a course in statistics may require a statistical software package, etc.). It is the responsibility of the learner to check specific course requirements and to acquire the software used in their course. Instructors will usually identify unique software requirements before the start of classes in their course Welcome Memos and in the course syllabus.

It is strongly suggested that you have current anti-virus software on the computer you are using for online courses!
