Computer Requirements

Stay up to date on what types of computers are required for first-year medical students here.


Printing subsidy — Part of the student technology fee at the IUSM–Indy campus is used to offset students’ printing costs. First year students receive an allotment of 500 pages each. You can use your Jagtag (student ID) to print for free in the Medical Library and in MS016A.

When your subsidy is almost exhausted, notify Card Services to switch to your own funds. (The switch-over doesn’t happen automatically until you hit zero, and when it does, you could lose printing capability until the next morning.)

Have you found the computer labs yet?

Do you have a Mac and need to get Windows Media Player to work?
