Our online systems and services work fine with Chromebooks. That said there may be a few courses that require specialized/additional windows software. These courses will be identified in our online store.
The most common stumbling block for Chromebook users will be if they have to FILL OUT an assignment that’s in PDF format. The issue will not apply to ALL PDF files that you fill in. For the few that are problematic there are simple workarounds if you are familiar with the features of Google Docs and Google Drive. For more tips on Chromebook PDF Issues, refer to this page. Please note that simply viewing a PDF file is not a problem for Chromebooks.
