Laptop Distribution Fall 2014

This year’s student laptop distribution is scheduled to take place from 9:00am to 1:00pm on Sunday, August 24, in the basement level of the Folsom Library.  FRESHMEN will be notified as to when they are scheduled to show up at distribution; UPPERCLASSMEN OR TRANSFER STUDENTS who wish to participate in the 2014-2015 Mobile Computing Program may arrive at any time between 9:00am and 1:00pm.

Important! - A photo ID is required to pick up your laptop. Your Rensselaer ID is preferred, but you may also show your driver's license, passport, or any other valid photo ID. Having your Rensselaer Identification Number (RIN) will also make this procedure easier.  You will also need to bring your RCS userID and password with you.

If you are unable to pick up your laptop on Sunday, August 24, the Mobile Computing Program will also hold two small-scale distribution sessions in the VCC lobby during the first week of classes, as follows:

  • Tuesday, August 26, 2pm-4pm
  • Wednesday, August 27, 11am-1pm
