Students located in certain countries, including China, may face challenges accessing some of their course content online due to slow internet connection speeds, limited connectivity, and/or government blocking or filtering of certain websites and programs.  Some individuals have reported that use of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) or Global Data Access Mobile Plans may address some of these challenges. The University cannot provide or recommend specific VPNs for student use; students are encouraged to research available options and determine whether they can lawfully and reasonably make use of such a technological solution in their jurisdiction.
