Laptop Loan Program
If a student needs a computer to complete their assignments for their courses (in-person/online/hybrid), ESCC has laptops available to be checked out. These laptops are to only be used for school-related purposes, and students will be held personally responsible for any actions or compromised information resulting from the loss, theft, or misuse of the College-owned laptops. As there are a limited number of laptop computers available from Boll Weevil Central each semester, the students must do the following:
- The student in need must complete a laptop request form at escc.edu/laptop.
- Sign and abide by the ESCC Laptop Loan Program Agreement and Information Technology Policies on Computer Use and Internet Access forms.
Laptops will be inspected each semester during the final examination week and must be returned immediately following the end of the semester.
