Additional Information

Due to the necessity of technology in MDC Online Courses, you must have a backup plan for using an alternative computer with internet access in case of problems with your personal computer.

If you live in the South Florida area, you may use the computer courtyards located on MDC campuses. If you have a technology problem that affects your ability to access your online course, please notify your instructor immediately.

If you can access other internet sites but cannot access your online course, you need to contact the Virtual College Student Support Center at 305.237.3800 to seek assistance.

If you have no internet access at all, it is not an MDC Online issue. Please be aware that the MDC Online's Student Support Center does not cover problems that you may be experiencing with your computer hardware, installation of software, internet connection, or other technical problems that may require a technician or intervention from your Internet Service Provider.
