This program requires students to actively pursue their degree in the approved major/minor for two years. A change of study voids participation in the program and requires students to return all equipment and peripherals. Students will be billed $650 Mobile Computing Fee per semester.
General guidelines for participation
- Study in one of the majors or minors listed above
- Completion of 4 semesters of study at Seton Hall as a full-time student
- Transfer into SHU with junior credits (60 + credits)
- Students are responsible to purchase all discipline specific software (e.g. Adobe Creative Suite, Parallels, etc.). There may be an additional charge if the software has to be upgraded before completion of degree requirements.
- Students will be charged up to $125 per incident for any non-warranty, accidental damage to the equipment. The amount charged per incident will depend on the cost of the parts needed to repair the equipment but will not exceed $125 per incident. If the cost to repair the damage exceeds the value of the equipment, students will be charged the full replacement value of the equipment.
This program provides limited support on-campus. The University purchases the AppleCare protection for warranty repair. Student and Asset Management coordinates repairs with the Apple Store. Loaner MacBooks are available in the event of a lengthy repair time. Student is responsible for backing up files before delivering the MacBook to the Apple Store for repair.
