Notes

Students are recommended to check the important dates for the Chang School current term before enrolling in the course and paying the fees. Notably, the Azure Virtual Desktop assigned to students will be accessible two days after the course’s starting date, and swapping between sections will not be permitted.

Students are also encouraged to download the Microsoft Remote Desktop app to access the software needed to complete this course’s requirements. Students also need to test the compatibility of the computer they plan to use before the first session, as machines operated using a third-party administrator, such as laptops provided by a workplace, may not allow access to the required software/download(s). International students might need to use their virtual private network (VPN) software if they cannot connect to University resources.
