In CSN’s continual efforts to help our students succeed, a set of notebook computers for CSN Students were procured. These are intended to help those students without the proper technology to be able to graduate, transfer, and prosper. Those students who qualify for this unique program are being contacted directly with the information that they need to get these new devices to help them succeed in the coming semester and beyond.

Please continue to check this page as well as your student e-mail in order to stay up-to-date on Covid-19 regulations and laptop distribution guidelines and events.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Qualifies? Due to federal funding, we are now able to offer laptops to all currently enrolled CSN students who need these devices to help them succeed in meeting their education goals.

Why Now? Due to the extended length of the pandemic, CSN has received additional federal funding for COVID relief. Our original efforts only covered First-Time/Full-Time Students who began at CSN in the Fall of 2020.  With this expanded funding, we are now able to offer devices to more individuals.

Is the Computer a Loaner? The computer is checked out to each student as a loaner for the duration of their academic career at CSN. Students must remain in good academic standing and continue to take classes. If the student is unable to continue at CSN they may need to return the computer.

What Happens When the Student Graduates? If the student successfully completes their course of study and successfully completes their program and graduates, then the computer is theirs to keep and assist them in their next adventure.

How Are the Students Getting the Computers? We are planning on doing distributions for the Fall 2021 semester. Please continue to check this page as well as your student email for more information and upcoming events!
