HSOP students must have a current laptop computer to satisfy the laptop requirement. You are not required to purchase from any specific vendor. HSOP OIT fully supports Windows-based systems, and provides limited support for Apple/Mac hardware and applications.
The laptops are used for a variety of tasks, including: on-line research, website development, email contact with faculty and other students, course evaluations, on-line testing, pharmacotherapeutics, presentation design and development, on-line course material access and download, Rx software installation, electronic medical records, portfolio applications, general coursework documentation, database development, assignment submissions, etc. Each year new uses are integrated into the curriculum.
NOTE: Incoming students are NOT required to have their laptops set up by HSOP OIT. Most resources are now online. You can download free AntiVirus software (Sophos/Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG) from AU Install once you have your username and password established for login. You may also want to install Tiger Print software in order to utilize the printers in the Walker Building. Go to: www.auburn.edu/download
