Student Laptop Policy

Jacksonville State University students will need a laptop that runs either Windows or Macintosh operating systems. Students are encouraged to bring laptops to classes and learning spaces on campus to access virtual labs and other computing resources available online. This laptop requirement ensures you will have adequate and timely access to the electronic resources necessary to be a successful JSU Gamecock. Chromebooks, tablets, and smart phones cannot access all the electronic educational material and resources used at JSU and are therefore not suitable devices.

Please note that certain majors have specific laptop requirements, so visit the links below for details.
