CSN Student Laptops

In CSN’s continual efforts to help our students succeed, a set of notebook computers for CSN students were procured. These were intended to help those students without the proper technology to be able to graduate, transfer, and prosper while supplies lasted.

The devices procured to support this initiative have been diminished. OTS will no longer be scheduling appointments to hand out laptops after February 23rd, 2024. The few remaining devices will be provided to departments such as FTFY, Student Govt, Math, etc. to be provided to those students who demonstrate the most need. Once these have been handed out, the program will be completed.
