Student Laptop Program
At St. Louis College of Pharmacy, all students are required to purchase a laptop computer through the Student Laptop Program. The College’s academic program is designed to incorporate technology to support collaborative learning, and standardized laptops ensure that every student is equipped with the hardware, software, connectivity and security measure requires to seamlessly connect on campus.
Through a partnership with Fujitsu, the College offers laptops at below-market prices that are designed to meet our students’ needs. Once purchased, the laptop is yours. It will remain under warranty for five years, and you may keep it or replace it whenever you wish. Students who choose to repurchase laptops must do so through the College online store.
Laptops and notebooks from other vendors will not be supported by the Technical Support Center or given access to the College’s secure computing network.
Log in to the online store to place your order.
For the start of the fall semester, laptop orders must be placed by Sunday, June 14, to avoid any potential delays in receiving your computer.
Payment and Financial Aid
The purchase of your laptop is financial aid-eligible, and you have the option of paying by cash or credit card at the time of purchase, or you may add the expense to your student account (which may be paid by cash, check or credit card).
Any student who has concerns about their ability to pay for their laptop purchase should contact the Office of Financial Aid at 314.446.8167 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maintenance and Support
For maintenance and support on Fujitsu laptops, the Technical Support Center (TSC) will continue to be a one-stop shop for all of your needs.
As long as your laptop is under warranty, nearly all repairs will be provided to you at no cost. After your five-year warranty expires, there may be a cost for some hardware repairs, but the (TSC) will continue to provide free technical and software support to all students.
