UH Maui College welcomes use of both the PC and Mac operating systems.
It is highly recommended that all UH Maui College students own a mobile computer (a Netbook or Laptop) for use during your academic endeavors. UH Maui College provides a seamless wireless environment for students to access the Internet, e-mail, classmates, library databases and other resources from numerous sites across the campus with your mobile computer.
Using a mobile computer will enrich a students learning experience by exposing them to new technologies in and outside of the classroom, allowing for better access to educational resources, and greater interaction with instructors and classmates.
In many cases, programs and/or courses will require students to use a mobile computer. Not all programs require portable computers, but most will require computer skills for research, writing and related assignments.
Both full and part time students need to check with their program of study and/or the department offering the course enrolled for the computing requirements. Incoming students should check with their programs on requirements for the classes they will be taking before the semester starts
UH Maui College students who already have, or are purchasing PC or Mac laptop or Netbook models other than the UH Maui College Dell Laptop Offer should check with their instructors and/or their program regarding the requirements.
Students can receive computing assistance from Computing Services, which will provide technical assistance on setting up or inputting necessary software.
