University Laptop Program
NCCU has reached agreements with Dell and Apple that will provide students with the opportunity to purchase fully-featured wireless laptop computers at discounted prices through our University Laptop Program.

The North Carolina Central University Laptop Program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to purchase a quality laptop at a discounted rate.  The ITS department has collaborated and heavily negotiated prices that will give you the biggest “bang for your buck,” to allow you to purchase the laptop that is right for you! 
This is not a mandatory program, but it is highly effective for your educational growth. When purchasing a laptop through this program you can be assured that the ITS department will fully support your laptop.  Our certified ITS technicians provide free on-site repair services.  All you have to do is drop off your laptop to the Student Computer Repair Center (SCRC) located on the lower level of the Alfonso Elder Student Union (beside the Campus Post Office).  If you have any questions you can contact the SCRC at 530-5038.
