Applying to Telos (continued)
As a distance-learning institute,
Telos relies heavily on electronic communication. Thus, you must have
access to computer hardware, software, and e-mail services.
You must have access to a multimedia
computer allowing you to utilize Telos training media, complete written
assignments, and send homework files to tutors via e-mail.
hardware standards for an IBM-compatible system: Pentium®/586,
100 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM, 500 MB hard drive, 4x CD-ROM, 16-bit
sound card, 28.8 Kbps modem, VGA color monitor, speakers, keyboard,
standards for an IBM-compatible system: 200 MHz or faster Pentium®
processor, 64 MB RAM or more, 1.2 G or greater hard drive, 24x
or faster CD-ROM, 16-bit sound card (full duplex), 56 Kbps or
faster modem, 15" or larger SVGA color monitor (.28 mm dot
pitch), speakers, keyboard, and mouse.
Minimum hardware standards
for a Macintosh system: 68040 processor, 16 MB RAM, 500 MB hard
drive, 4x CD-ROM, built-in sound, 28.8 Kbps modem, VGA color monitor,
speakers, keyboard, and mouse.
standards for a Macintosh system: PPC 603e, 180 MHz or faster
processor, 32 MB RAM or more, 1.2 G or greater hard drive, 24x
or faster CD-ROM, built-in sound (full duplex), 56 Kbps or faster
modem, 15" or larger SVGA color monitor (.28 mm dot pitch),
speakers, keyboard, and mouse.
You must use either Microsoft® Word or Corel® WordPerfect®
(minimum version 6 for both) for word-processing assignments. (Please
note that Microsoft® Works is not an acceptable word processor.) Minimum
operating systems are Windows® 95 for PC and System 7 for Macintosh®.
You are responsible to obtain your own software (available through university
bookstores or directly from the distributor) and must purchase required
software before registration.
During Telos studies, you will receive many files formatted in Adobe®
Acrobat®. For this reason, you are required to download the free Adobe®
Acrobat® Reader program from the Adobe Web site. (You will receive
instructions for the download process when you are accepted into Telos.)
Internet Service Provider
An Internet Service Provider (ISP) connects you to the Internet and electronic
mail. Reliable communication with the Telos staff and your tutors depends
largely on an ISP that supports attached files of at least 4 MB and a
modem operating speed of 2.8 KB/second or faster. You must meet e-mail
requirements by the registration deadline.
Families desiring an ISP that filters Internet content may consider American
Family Online®. Learn more about American Family Online at: www.afo.net
or call 1-888-817-9314.
Although some ISPs have file-attachment capability, they do not consistently
manage the required file attachment load. Juno™ and Juno Web™
must be version 5.0 or higher. Some students have used America Online®
(AOL®), Hotmail®, and Yahoo!® with little difficulty. However,
they have not been consistently reliable. If you choose to use these ISPs
and find that they do not perform as needed, you are responsible to secure
a reliable service without interrupting your assignment schedule.
