Department Requirements

Here you will find information on any technology related requirements that your department has in place to get you through your program. This is an evolving collaboration which we hope will continue to grow into all the academic departments here at Columbia College to make things easier for new and continuing students, as well as parents, staff, and faculty. As a testament to this mission we invite any suggestions from students, faculty or staff to let us know what we can do to better assist you in this aim via email at

Please note that we highly encourage contacting us either via phone or email to get a personal and current computer recommendation. Some department recommendations may be unavailable or out of date, and many of the suggested laptops are generalized and do not take into account certain concentrations or specific needs of the student (such as a minor, or use of an intensive computer application).
