Tools, Equipment, and Supplies
No special tools or equipment are required for this program. Some instructors use technology to minimize the use of paper. If a student wishes to produce hard copies of documents (possible hand-outs or extra notes not provided by the instructor, then he/she will need to include the cost of purchasing paper and printing copies as part of his/her budget.
Most students purchase items routinely used for class, such as pens, pencils notebooks, calculators, etc. which may be purchased through the DSLCC Bookstore or another location.
Students are not required to purchase a computer, but most instructors will assign work for students to complete that requires the use of a personal desktop or laptop computer with internet access. It is very likely that some assignments will be made requiring students to work outside of regularly scheduled class times. Students may use computer labs on the main campus and at the DSLCC Rockbridge Regional Center during regular business hours; however, due to some deadlines and personal schedules, students should expect situations in which they must complete work and/or submit assignments on their own time outside of college hours and should plan accordingly.
