FM Technology & Computer Use Guidelines


Request a loaner laptop

  • Loan applications will be processed in the order they are received and it may take up to 48 hours for a response.
  • Walk-ins will not be accommodated. 
  • The equipment loaned to you will be based on your course requirements, and not personal preference.
  • We will only contact you by your FM Student email.

This loan is for the current semester only. You will be required to return this computer by the end of this semester. Failure to do so will make you ineligible for future computer loans.

Application for a loaner laptop


If eligible, these grant programs can assist you with a computer loan or purchase:

Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.
