Prepare Your PC for Online Learning
Your Personal Computer
The computer that you intend to use to complete online coursework must meet certain minimum requirements. We recommend that you check the capabilities of your computer before accessing your online course. If you’re in the market to buy a computer, you'll want to read our technical recommendations.
Internet, Computer, and Web Browser Requirements
You’ll need a stable Internet connection (a modem is fine, but a high-speed connection is recommended) and a PC or Macintosh computer capable of running a current version of the Firefox or Internet Explorer web browsers.
Much important information regarding your online courses at SUNY Plattsburgh will be communicated to you through your SUNY Plattsburgh email account. Therefore, if your preferred email address is not your SUNY Plattsburgh address, you will need to forward your campus email to an alternate account.
My Plattsburgh is a Web portal that provides you with convenient, customized access to campus information and services. Here you can access your campus email, store and share files, read important announcements from your instructors, and access your online courses.
