IV. Regulation Statement

Brookdale Community College (College) acquires laptop computers for its CTE and Health Science educational programs through Perkins Grant Funding. In addition, the College has acquired an emergency supply of laptop computers utilizing approved College purchasing procedures through the College’s Purchasing Department via the submission of an E-Requisition.

To borrow a laptop computer from the College, a student must:

  • be a currently registered CTE or Health Science Student with no blocks on his/her record.
  • have a current College Student ID number and email address.
  • have another photo ID such as a driver’s license, passport or State ID.
  • read, understand and abide by the College’s Acquisition and Loaning of Laptop Computers Regulation.
  • sign a Laptop Computer Loan Agreement form. The student’s signature on the Laptop Computer Loan Agreement form is an acknowledgement of his/her compliance with the College’s applicable Regulation and Loan Agreement.

Additional information:

  • Only one laptop computer may be borrowed at a time.
  • Availability is on first come, first serve basis.
  • Laptop computers are available for one (1) full semester or term.
  • Laptop computers must be returned by the last day of the semester or term, or if the student withdraws from the College, or if instructed by the College.

  • Upon return, students should allow 30 minutes for the laptop computer to be checked in by a College staff member who will verify that the laptop computer is in working order before the student leaves the building or other designated drop-off location.
