The COMP department wants you to be successful in COMP 101. In order to do that, you must have the right hardware and software, and register for the correct section for that hardware/software. One of the greatest barriers to student success in COMP 101 is they get off to a rocky start because they are either in the wrong section or do not have the hardware and software required and specified for the course/CRN.

It is slightly more complicated to register for COMP 101 than for other courses because the section numbers are associated with a particular version of Office.
