Student Hardware Requirements

The college supports students in attaining the technical knowledge and equipment necessary to take a web-enhanced traditional, hybrid, and/or online course. IT makes a best effort to support students who are experiencing difficulty using the required technology.

Traditional, hybrid, and online courses and programs are web-based and good computer skills and access to an up-to-date computer and high-speed Internet connection are imperative. Labouré’s web-enhanced traditional, hybrid and online courses require the following minimum hardware and software requirements.

  • Intel Core i5 processor or AMD A8 equivalent processor
  • A full 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows 10 with a minimum version of 1909 (We do not support Windows 10 S Mode) or Mac OS X 10.14.6 Mojave
  • Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome
  • At least 4 GB of RAM but 8 GB recommended
  • Tablets and ChromeBooks are not supported
  • Microsoft Office (provided via your Labouré Microsoft Office 365 account) 
  • Adobe PDF reader (link will be provided to free download)
  • Broadband Internet connection is recommended
  • Integrated webcam and microphone
  • Scanner (if required by program)

Most if not all laptops produced in the past 3 - 4 years will meet the requirements above. If you have any questions as to whether your computer meets the requirements above, please reach out to the IT Department for confirmation before you start your course.
