ATSU Student Account
Approximately ten days after you paid your acceptance fee you should have received an email from the ITS Help Desk with your personal login information to the ATSU portal, which is the access point to ATSU’s electronic resources. If you have not received this information, please contact the ATSU Help Desk by calling 866.626.2878, ext. 2200, or sending an email.
Required residential student laptop computers
ATSU requires residential students to own laptop computers for use in their coursework.
Although we don’t have specific requirements as to model and brand, ATSU is authorized to repair Lenovo laptops and MacBooks. Below are the minimum specifications for computers that will connect to the ATSU network. Please disable any Peer - Peer applications on your computer.
Note on minimum specs
Although the specifications outlined are allowed specs, remember they are the minimum. A computer for professional study is not a good place to economize. Technology advances quickly and ATSU stays up-to-date with those advances. Thus, if you matriculate with a computer that is several years old, you could start having issues particularly with network connectivity before you graduate.
