Laptop Programs:

Extended Laptop Loan

Funded through the Library/IT Assessment, the Academic Computing and Communications Center partners with the Honors College to offer an extended laptop lending program called ACCCELL. The goal of the ACCCELL service is to provide students in need with a loaner laptop to use during their tenure at UIC to assist in their academic success.  


FUNDED BY: University (Failure to return equipment on the due date may result in fines)


How does the ACCC Extended Laptop Loan (ACCCELL) program work?

The ACCCELL program is made possible through the student Library/IT Assessment and partnership with the UIC Honors College.
Incoming students who are recipients of the President's Award Program scholarship are eligible to receive a new laptop as a learning tool for use during their time at UIC. Students must maintain good standing with UIC to retain the laptop.
ACCCELL laptops come with no-cost (with the exception of accidental damage) hardware support from ACCC. Recipients can visit the C-Stop BSB for assistance.

Are there costs for the ACCCELL program?

The ACCCELL program is funded by the student Library/IT Assessment. There is no additional cost for this service to ACCCELL recipients.
However, missing parts or a lost or stolen laptop may result in the receiving student being billed up to the full amount of replacing the laptop ($1,200). Costs to repair damage, other than normal wear and tear, to the laptop incurred during the time it is checked out will be charged to the student's UIC account. Charges will vary according to the cost of restoring the laptop to working condition, up to the full amount of replacing the laptop ($1,200).

What are my responsibilities if I receive an ACCCELL laptop?

Students participating in the ACCCELL program have certain responsibilities.
The receiving student is responsible for the security of the laptop and its accessories. If the laptop is damaged, lost, or stolen, the student may be responsible for costs up to the full value of the laptop ($1,200). ACCC is not responsible for non-ACCC programs or files remaining on the laptop once the laptop is returned, and is not responsible for loss or damage to a user’s non-ACCC programs or files as a consequence of use of the laptop. The student is required to agree to and sign a receipt prior to obtaining the laptop. The receipt contains all pertinent information about the computer. The student must be enrolled and in good standing with UIC to remain in the ACCCELL program. If at any time this is not the case, the student is required to return the laptop to ACCC.
