The nature of your academic and clinical work as a student at the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies necessitates ongoing development of technical skills to access information efficiently, communicate effectively and document accurately. As a result, access to and ongoing use of a computer and other technology is required for all of our students. The following set of minimum technology requirements has been established by the graduate school to identify the skills and systems each student needs to have (or have access to) in order to complete your master’s degree program. Some requirements pertain primarily to online students (as noted). In all other cases, the requirements apply to every student. NOTE: These requirements were approved by the Information and Technology Committee on February 3, 2016 and are reviewed annually.
