Computer Standard Specifications

  • All PCs now come with Windows 10.
  • Every year the CRP team reviews the standard configurations and make adjustments based on computer model upgrades and the baseline needs of the university.
    • This normally happens during June/July. 
  • Upgrades beyond any of the standard configurations are available at extra cost to the department.
  • Be sure to consult with a technician to ensure the latest standards meet your needs prior to applying for a new computer.

Please note we can not exchange or return your computer once you submit your computer request.
