NOTE: Students are required to be logged into their SWC Google Account/MySWC account to access and complete the form. This validates their student status with SWC.
When Will I Be Required to Return the Device?
You will receive an equipment return notice a week prior to the end of the semester with instructions for returning your loaner equipment. All items you received with your loan should be returned, including the charger for the device. Laptops will be inspected upon return. If there has been any damage beyond normal wear and tear during the loan period or if the laptop is lost or stolen, you will be liable for the cost to repair or replace it. Upon return, all user files will be removed. Please make sure you save all important files to a portable storage device.
