(June 10, 2021 3:43 PM) Jackson College today announced they will provide laptop computers to new students this fall who register for at least six credits, using federal funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020.
This initiative aligns with Jackson College’s Total Commitment to Student Success, providing students the technology they need to be successful in their classes. Up to 1,000 laptops are available for students and come with Microsoft Office. Students must plan to earn an associate degree and enroll in at least six credits per semester. When they complete the associate degree, they may keep the laptop. If they fail to finish or drop below satisfactory academic progress, they must return the computer.
Registration for the fall semester is currently open. Plans are to offer about 50 percent of courses in-person, and 50 percent online via virtual learning. Students may complete their admissions application online and apply to receive a laptop. Visit www.jccmi.edu/free-laptop.
The fall semester begins on Aug. 30.
