Computing Device Requirement and Software Compatibility for SoNHS Programs

You will need to have a fully functioning laptop computer with either Microsoft or Apple operating systems and know how to use with Microsoft Word.

  • Chromebooks, iPads, Android devices, cell phones, and other personal devices that use smart technologies like a cell phone will not be able to complete all of the functions required for this program as these devices will not work fully with Canvas.
  • Please make sure you have a functioning camera and microphone (do not rely on cell phone or tablet).

The UMKC RooTech program through the UMKC Bookstore offers a selection of hardware and software, financing options and services at educational prices. There is no required brand or model assuming they meet the minimum hardware standards below.

  • Note that the Google Chromebook or other laptops running on Android operating systems do not meet specification.
  • Laptops must support Windows or MacOS.

If you are unsure regarding compatibility, please consult Information Services prior to purchasing a device. Please refer to this website for minimum hardware standards.
