We will not have a Computer Lab with shared PCs so all participants are required to bring their own portable computer to access online course notes and computer resources. This can be a laptop or a tablet with a sufficiently large screen and keyboard. Windows, Mac, and Linux-based systems that are wifi capable and have a standard web browser and mouse are all acceptable. You should have privileges for software installs. If you are unable to bring a computer, please contact email@example.com ASAP to request a laptop loan. Very limited IT support and spare loaner laptops will be available during the session.
U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. may enroll for 3 credits from Northern Illinois University. International participants living outside the U.S. may apply to attend the program and may request financial sponsorship but they may not earn credit from Northern Illinois University. International students requesting a scholarship who are not from U.S. visa-waiver countries must already be in possession of a visa that is valid for the entire period of the USPAS session.
USPAS attendees must be 18 years or older.
