How To: Retain Your Assigned DSU Laptop 

 

Overview:

While you are a student at Dakota State and you participate in DSU’s WMCI Laptop Program, there are times when school is not in session or on break and may or may not be allowed to keep their device during this time.  This article explains when a student must return their device to Support Services or how to request to retain the device during these times.

 

Summer Break (May-Aug):

During the summer months, whether you are taking summer courses or not, all students are required to complete a Summer Retain Request form either ONLINE or at the Support Desk.  All forms are reviewed, and you will either receive an approval by email (online) or signed receipt (paper).  Denials will be provided with explanation.

During the summer school break, those students who wish to retain their device during this time must meet the following requirements:

Student must be pre-registered for the upcoming fall semester (at least 6 on-campus credits; online credits do not count towards this requirement). 

Student must be pre-registered by 3pm on the last day of the spring semester (see Academic Calendar for exact dates).

NOTE:  ALL STUDENTS MUST PAY THE SUMMER RENTAL FEE PRIOR TO LEAVING CAMPUS.

If you do not meet these requirements, please see “What to do if requirements are not met” section below.


Summer Break Retain Only:

For those students who wish to retain their device over the summer months for summer courses and return prior to the fall start date can do so by special request.  Please complete the Summer Retain Request, check the “I am registered for SUMMER ONLY and provide the last day of your summer course for a return date.  This will be reviewed, verified, and either approved or denied.  The same fee is applied for Summer Only retain requests.

 

Winter Semester Break (Dec-Jan):

During the semester break between fall and spring semesters, those students who wish to retain their device during this time they must meet the following requirements:

Student must be pre-registered for the upcoming fall semester (at least 6 on-campus credits; online credits do not count towards this requirement). 

Student must be pre-registered by 3pm on the last day of the spring semester (see Academic Calendar for exact dates).

No paperwork needs to be completed for this request and there is no cost related to this break.  If you are pre-registered by the deadline we will see you next semester!

If you do not meet these requirements, please see “What to do if requirements are not met” section below.

 

What to do if requirements are not met:

If a student is not pre-registered for upcoming semester, they MUST return their device by 3pm on the last day of the semester (see Academic Calendar for exact dates).
