I am with Scott and asking about the loan program that took out $ from our paycheck overtime, It has been a real problem for me personally - the loss of that program. As an online teacher with video/media I just can’t wait for 5 years to refresh. I used to buy through that program at about 3 yrs so I had an in between computer . My laptop currently 4.5 years and on its last legs, dead battery, etc. I am literally wearing holes through the keys on the keyboard !!

As an alternative, if you want an Apple computer, sign up for a Barclays Visa credit card. You can buy a Mac and pay for it over 12 to 18 months with no interest if paid fully paid within the promotional period. Just don’t use the credit card for other purchases. The interest is high.

The FH Promise list allows for book expenses at the FH Bookstore to be covered AND students NOT on the FH Promise Program who have federal or state grants get an advance of their funds to use at the Bookstore.

Please check in with your manager first. Then, you’ll need to talk with ETS to unlock the computer and also notify the PD you’ll be coming onto campus.

Computers are on a refresh schedule. If you are having problems with your computer you can put a ticket into ETS who can provide an analysis for your computer. If the computer is not functioning, they can provide a lender. If you are due for a computer refresh we have Measure C funds for computer replacement.
