University of Arkansas students with demonstrated financial need can now apply to checkout a laptop for the fall semester. Approximately 200 laptops are available through this partnership between IT Services and the Division of Student Affairs. The program is open to all undergraduate and graduate students who have a demonstrated financial need.

“Access to technology is even more critical during this season of remote and hybrid learning,” Provost Charles Robinson said. “No student should have to worry about their academic success due to lack of access to a computer.”

Selected students will be contacted with instructions to pick up laptops. All equipment must be returned at the end of the semester, either in person or shipped.

The application deadline for priority consideration is Sunday, August 30, 2020.

For questions on how to apply, contact Ellen Kinnamon in the Dean of Students Office at 479-575-5004.
