Laptop Programs:

This program was established to assist students who need off-campus computing resources during this rapid shift to online instruction. This program attempts to close the gap between those students with financial need for computing resources who do not have the financial assistance.

Galveston College’s Financial Aid Office in collaboration with the Information Technology (IT) Office provides the Laptop Loan Program to students. The Laptop Loan Program allows qualified students to borrow laptop computers from the IT department for use during a long (fall or spring) semester, saving students hundreds of dollars in college costs.

Students who do not have access to the following computer equipment, which is required to run Zoom (for web conferencing) and Canvas, may benefit from borrowing a laptop:

  • Windows or Mac OS X operating systems (Google Chromebooks, iPads, iPhones, and Android tablets and phones do not support Canvas)
  • A webcam
  • A microphone
