Student Computer Requirements
All students entering the Agricultural Systems Management and BioResource and Agricultural Engineering majors – either as a first-time freshman or as a transfer student – are expected to have a laptop computer to ensure access to computing capability at all times and in all locations, helping to support student success. The department specifications provided below are designed to support students’ computing needs through at least four years of Cal Poly instruction.
The Cal Poly bookstore offers educational discounts for computing hardware. Students who are experiencing financial hardship and who do not have resources available to purchase a computer can contact the Financial Aid Office to determine if any one-time funding may be available. You should email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: "CAFES Computer Need." Cal Poly provides a host of IT support resources for students.
