Student Laptop Program
Students in the occupational therapy professional education program participate in a mandatory computer lease program through the School of Medicine. Although the program may vary annually in terms of the type of computer leased and cost, it is anticipated that the program will continue in the future.
The program involves lease of a state of the art computer (currently a Mac Book) which is pre-loaded with basic software tools and professionally relevant education programs. The program also provides Internet service and technical assistance. The fee to students is around $2,300. This cost is a recognized educational requirement and is included in financial aid calculations. Please consider this required student computer program in your decisions regarding purchase of a computer if you are a pre-professional student.
If you have questions regarding this program, please visit the HSC Information Technology Services website or contact the department Help Desk at (304) 293-3631.
