Computer Requirements

Will Your Computer Work?
Eastern Kentucky University’s online programs feature a wide range of innovative learning methods, but that doesn’t mean you’ll need a supercomputer to study online. In fact, if you can surf the Internet with your computer there is a good chance it will meet the computer requirements for our online programs.

If your computer does not meet the requirements listed below, or you are looking to upgrade for another reason, there are many readily available and inexpensive netbook computers that exceed our performance requirements. These small laptop computers may be a perfect and practical option that can provide portability and reliability to your studies.

EKU does not promote purchasing any specific type or brand of computer or laptop for our online courses. As long as your computer meets the requirements listed below, the choice is up to you.
