Internet Connection

All General Business Programs courses are designed for broadband (high-speed) internet connections and are available through regional campus labs. If you prefer to complete coursework off-campus, we highly recommend a broadband connection to the internet. Attempting to view video components or listen to audio demonstrations with a dial-up / modem connection will be frustrating, if not completely impossible.

Contact your cable or telephone provider for additional information about broadband options and pricing.
