What is “Bring Your Own Device?” BYOD is just as it sounds. Students bring their own portable devices such as a laptop, or tablet into the classroom.

To get you off to a strong start to earning your degree or certificate, all new students enrolling at Zane State College are required to have their own laptop or computer. This device will be used in the classroom, and for preparing for class at home. Your cell phone will not be an adequate substitution. If you already have a device, you are all set and ready for the start of classes. We do not recommend the use of Chromebooks.

Low to moderately priced laptops are available in the College Bookstore which allows you to use financial aid money to purchase your device. IT and Engineering programs may require specialized laptops not available in the College Bookstore.
