What you'll need:

  • Personal computers are not generally required (except in the Graphic Design, Photography, and Interior Design Programs) but are highly recommended for all students. The College has arrangements with Dell Computer for discounted computer purchases. A similar arrangement is in place with Apple Computer for programs with Macintosh requirements.
  • Living on Campus?? You will need the following:
    • A coax cable to connect your TV to the wall jack.
    • A network cable to connect your PC or laptop to the wired network connection in your room.

Network Requirements for connecting a computer to the network:

  • Use a currently licensed anti-virus program that has auto updating and is up to date with the latest virus definitions. If you do not have an anti-virus program, AVG is available for free online, but is not officially endorsed by Sage.
  • Maintain current OS patches.
  • A current Anti-Spyware solution such as Microsoft Windows Defender. Available at The Microsoft Website
