It is crucial that transfer students be proficient with UNIX concepts and tools that will be used on a daily basis. This includes, but is not limited to: the Internet (email, ftp and World Wide Web), UNIX directory and file structures, and UNIX process control. For the most part, students will not receive formal instruction on these topics, but instead, must learn on their own.

There are two UNIX tutorial web sites written by instructors in the department, one provided by Sean Davis and the other by Professor Norm Matloff.
