Bring Your Own Device Program

Learn With Your Own Device

Willis College encourages you to bring your own portable technology. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program is a program set up for students to allow them to use their own devices while on-campus or at home.

The benefits of using your own device are:

  • Learn with a device you are familiar with how to use
  • Conduct research using browsers and a device you are familiar with
  • Take class notes easily saving printing extra paper
  • Pursue topics that are part of your courses
  • A more environmentally-friendly choice to help reduce the resources needed for new PCs and laptops
  • Promotes the reuse of existing devices and keeping devices out of our landfills
