Computer/Laptop Requirements

Online learning is a critical component of course delivery in all Red River College programs. To ensure each student has the tools they need to achieve their academic goals, all Red River College students require, at a minimum:

1.  Off-campus access to a current computer with a webcam

2.  A high-speed internet connection
