Get Portable: College of Business Laptop Requirement

Beginning Fall 2009, all students enrolling in select College of Business courses must have access to a laptop computer that can be brought to class when there is in-class computer usage. Courses with this requirement will be noted in the online semester registration Class Schedules and in the 2009-2010 (and subsequent) catalogs. A list of these courses can also be found on the COB website.
