Due to university-wide budgetary constraints, the Laptop Choice Program has been suspended for the remainder of the 2023-2024 fiscal year.

For the remainder of the 2023-2024 fiscal year, IT will only replace laptops eligible for the Laptop Choice Program that cannot otherwise be repaired. No exceptions.

In addition, effective 11/7/2023 the following changes will be implemented:

  1. The computer refresh lifecycle has been extended from 4 years to 5 years for a Windows computer and from 5 years to 6 years for a Mac computer.
  2. IT will not be providing peripherals (i.e. additional monitors, mouse, keyboards, etc.). No exceptions.
  3. We will review the Laptop Choice Program again starting July 1, 2024 to determine feasibility of the current policy.

The Laptop Choice program provides all full-time faculty and staff with one computer (only). The computer is a choice of a Mac or a PC laptop providing access to a seamless digital workspace.

Laptops are a more agile, sustainable, and cost-effective solution that provides an integrated seamless digital workspace for a more collaborative workforce. Learn more about the program here.
