All Students Should Meet
Baseline Computer Requirements

Each UWF student is expected to meet the following baseline requirements:

  • Activate a UWF ArgoNet e-mail account
  • Access e-mail two to three times a week
  • Have basic word-processing knowledge
Instructors should ensure that basic assignments can be completed using software packages currently available in the ArgoNet labs.

Students should expect that instructors may request that assignments be completed on a computer and/or be turned in via e-mail rather than printed.

The following technology indicators on a course indicate the extent of technology usage required, in addition to the above stated baseline requirement.

Some Online Campus courses may require proctored exams. Please check the course syllabus for details.
