Computer Requirements and Email

Computer Use

Each student must have access to a computer, and any course offered may require computer-based work.  Students are also required to have access to a broadband Internet connection to access e-mail, online course materials, library databases, ERAU's Intranet, and the World Wide Web.  Productivity software such as word processing and presentation software must be installed and certain courses may require access to spreadsheet or other software.  It is the responsibility of each student to ensure his or her access to a computer with the required software.  

ERAU Student Email Account

ERAU issues both an email and Embry-Riddle Network for Information Exchange (ERNIE) account to provide access to online services when an application for admission has been submitted. These accounts are made available to students via ERNIE at ernie.erau.edu. Please check your ERAU email frequently, as the University will use this account to send official notification on University matters after a student is admitted. Although the software used to send some of these communications automatically includes an "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of each message, do not unsubscribe since this will hinder the University's ability to provide you with important information. Your ERAU email account will remain active for up to two years after your last ERAU course. If you have not registered for a course, your system access will be terminated one year from your date of admission or one year from your application date if you have not yet been admitted.
