The goal of this program is to assist students who are in financial need to purchase an appropriately equipped PC laptop in order to transition to on-line classes. This emergency loan process is limited from March 26- April 6, 2020.

If you are a student having difficulty securing a laptop computer for your online learning courses, you are now able to request an emergency loan. An emergency loan will be granted up to $750.00 to purchase a computer. This loan will be added to your student account.
