Eligibility, Ordering and Paying

Eligibility

All incoming and current Rensselaer students in good standing, including graduate students, may participate in the Mobile Computing Program.  Students are eligible and may elect to participate in the Mobile Computing Program a maximum of once per academic year.

Ordering

Laptop orders are placed through the Student Information System (SIS) using your nine-digit Rensselaer ID Number (RIN) and your PIN.  The primary order window for Fall 2020 will be May 15th through June 5th.  We ask students to order during this time to ensure we are able to anticipate, order and recieve sufficient quantity for distribution before classes begin in the fall.  We will still accept orders after the primary order window and throughout the academic year, but it's possible there will be a short delay in fullfillment if we are awaiting additional orders from the suppliers.  

Paying

For orders placed in the summer, the cost of the laptop package you select will be added to your regular student bill for September.  For laptops ordered throughout the academic year, the cost will be billed to your regular student bill during the semester you recieve the laptop.  If you received a laptop award, this amount will be deducted from the MCP package cost and will be visible during ordering.
