STUDENT TECHNOLOGY AND ELECTRONIC MAIL REQUIREMENT
UWF prepares students for current and future business and life applications using basic technology. Each UWF student is expected to:

  • Activate a UWF ArgoNet account
  • Access the ARGUS web portal 2-3 times a week
  • Access UWF email account (ArgoMail) 2-3 times a week
  • Have basic word-processing knowledge

Student use of UWF information technology resources is governed by the Computing Resources Usage Agreement and the Student Communications Policy. (See ?My ArgoNet? tab in ARGUS)

The University uses email for both formal and informal communication with students.

Each student, upon enrolling, is issued a UWF email account. Students are expected to regularly check their UWF email account (ArgoMail) for University business and official University communications. UWF accounts remain the property of the University of West Florida.

Students should expect that instructors may request assignments be completed on a computer and/or be turned in via email rather than printed. Instructors should ensure that basic assignments can be completed using software packages currently available in the ArgoNet labs or virtual lab ?eDesktop? environment.

The following technology indicators on a course indicate the extent of technology usage required, in addition to the above stated baseline requirement.
