Internet access is required to participate in online components of your college courses at UTTC. An Internet Service Provider (ISP) will provide you with the software and access necessary to utilize the Internet in order of preference:

  • Recommended: LAN, Cable, or DSL connection. Highly recommended for optimal student experience. Required for all technical programs.
  • 56K Dial-up connection. Many course components will have suboptimal performance when accessed through a 56K dial-up connection.
  • Satellite and/or Wireless Internet connection. Satellite and wireless connections are not recommended. Performance may be suboptimal due to latency and signal instability.

If AOL is your ISP, you must use the Internet Explorer or Firefox browser, rather than the default AOL browser, to complete coursework in a college course online. Simply launch the appropriate browser after logging onto your AOL account.

If you connect to the Internet through your company, you may need to ensure that appropriate plug-ins and access rights are available to you. Check with your IT department to ensure that you may access course materials from your company's network
