SCC/OEC Laptop Loaner Program
The SCC/OEC Loaner Laptop Program is for students who do not have access to technology at home and are in need of a loaner laptop to participate in credit and/or noncredit courses.
The Laptop Loaner Program is experiencing a high volume of requests for the Fall 2022 semester.
Therefore, a waitlist has been put in effect for current and future requests for a laptop loaner device.
We appreciate the attention and courtesy at this time.
Our team is working efficiently and going over the applications in order from the time they were submitted.
DO NOT LET THIS DISCOURAGE YOU FROM FILLING OUT A LAPTOP REQUEST.
WE WILL STILL RECEIVE YOUR REQUEST EVEN THOUGH IT WILL BE PUT ON WAITLIST
