Lethbridge College is focused on enhancing the students’ learning experiences so they have a greater capacity to succeed and contribute to society. We recognize the value of using mobile devices as learning tools. In programs requiring students to use personal mobile devices (i.e. laptop, tablet), the devices must meet or exceed the hardware requirements set by the programs. In some instances, the devices must be purchased from Lethbridge College. Please contact the chair of the program in which you are enrolled for additional information.
