Computer Loan Program

In support of staff development, the NC State University Staff Senate provides a Computer Loan Program for qualifying NC State staff members. This program provides computers to employees who may have limited access to develop computer skills and who want to take classes or expand their knowledge in ways that are mutually beneficial to themselves and the university. The Staff Senate Computer Loan Committee manages this initiative.

The computer loan is for one year but can be renewed if employment at the university continues and the participant remains eligible. This program provides Windows or Apple Laptop devices to approved applicants.

Participant Eligibility Criteria

  • NC State staff member
  • An annual salary of $40K or less
  • Permanent employee
  • Work at least 35 hours per week
