Below lists the procedures to go through to receive a laptop for new employees. Faculty and staff will have the choice of Mac, PC or tablet PC. See the list of laptop models.
New Adjunct Faculty
Adjunct faculty or office manager will need to fill out form for approval to receive a laptop. This form must be approved by the Dean/Chair of the department. Submit the form to the Technical Support Center, Somsen 207. Once TSC has received the approval form for the laptop, the new faculty member then needs to schedule to attend one of the laptop distribution sessions. These sessions are scheduled every week until school starts, they last approximately 90 minutes and are held in Somsen 207. Call 5240 option #1 to schedule the appointment.
New Full-Time Faculty
