Technology Requirements for Students

Kettering College embraces the integration of technology in our programs for enhanced learning. It is important that our students equip themselves with the technology tools they will need for success.

Personal Computers

Students should have a desktop or laptop computer. PC’s need to be using the Windows 10 operating system, and Macs need to be using macOS 10.13 or higher.

Chromebooks, tablets, or smartphones are not recommended. Please note that these devices may not be capable of meeting all course requirements. Students still must have access to a computer with the recommended operating systems mentioned above.
