Laptop Requirements for Students

CPM requires students purchase and have a laptop as part of the College's educational experience that is newly manufactured within two years of your start date of the degree program. The minimum requirements for laptops for CPM students are listed below, but more than this is strongly recommended.

All laptops regardless of device type must include either an internal or external webcam and internal or external microphone for use with Proctorio. The webcam must support a resolution of at least 320x240 VGA. Due to Examsoft, our other testing platform, tablet devices running Android or iOS are not permitted. Chromebooks are also not permitted at this time.
