Computer Basics

We’re taking extensive precautions to keep you (and us) #ACMstrong. We require all students, campus visitors, and employees to wear face masks or face coverings, practice proper hand hygiene and social distancing measures, and self-monitor for coronavirus/COVID-19 disease symptoms. Everyone is required to sign in when visiting an office or department, and attending class or a lab. Hand sanitizer is available in all buildings. ACM campuses and education sites undergo intensive cleaning and sanitation daily. This includes the use of special cleaning chemicals and an ultraviolet (UV) sanitation cart for high touch areas like computer labs.  Disinfectant wipes will be provided to individual students as they enter their classroom. We’ve changed the way we’re offering classes to reduce the number of students in each class. This act of reducing classroom density may help you build stronger relationships with your classmates and instructors in the process.
