Notice to all Safety students taking courses with ANY online content!
Internet Connections – Dial-up, satellite, and wireless Internet connections (such as public & home networks, cellular air cards, WiFi, etc.), and/or mobile devices (such as the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Kindle, Book Nook, Blackberry, Android, etc., etc., etc.) are NOT recommended for accessing and taking tests in Blackboard. A wired connection is the most reliable and should be used for taking online tests. Note: If you must use a wireless connection, make sure you have a strong connection signal. If you do use a “dial-up modem” to connect to the Internet, turn off “call waiting” and if you use the same line for voice calls, make sure no one picks of the phone and disconnects you from the Internet.
Note: The week-end lab required for the Master of Science courses Industrial Hygiene and HAZMAT will meet for one weekend only for each of the respective courses. It is NOT an every week requirement.
