Student Laptop Information

At MCPHS, technology is meant to assist you in your academic journey, not hinder your success. To provide you with the most robust learning environment, we have identified a guideline for ensuring you have the best experience. Before the start of classes, please be sure to check our technology requirements below and ensure that your laptop meets our minimum requirements. Additional software may be required by your course instructors and will vary by semester, so please be sure to consult your course syllabus at the start of each term.

MCPHS works with our vendor GovConnection each summer to identify a standard model laptop on both the Apple and Windows platforms to align with your preference. This portal is live from June until mid-August each year. At any time outside of this window, when you look to purchase a laptop, please ensure it meets the minimum requirements.

Please note: While an iPad, Chromebook or other similar tablet may be a useful tool for note-taking or other tasks, a laptop computer is still required to accommodate the various testing tools used in classes.

Benefits to Purchasing through our Vendor Portal

  • Lower cost to student than going direct to vendors, including below Apple Education discounts
  • Laptops are bundled with 3 or 4-year repair coverage
  • Should you need to have your laptop repaired, stop by the Help Desk to have us ship it out for you.
  • You'll also receive a loaner laptop while your laptop is out for repair.

Additional Questions

If you have concerns over meeting minimum requirements, MCPHS has options:

  • Currently enrolled students: Contact the Dean of Students office.
  • Accepted students: Contact the Admissions office.
