Laptop Transfer of Ownership

In order to qualify for ownership, you must complete the process outlined below. Ownership of the laptop is contingent upon completion of graduation requirements.

In the event that you have not completed your degree, the Transfer of Ownership agreement will become null and void. You will also be required to continue in the Mobile Computing Program under the university guideline set forth regarding participation in the program.

The online Laptop Transfer of Ownership for May graduating students begins early May and ends on graduation day. This means that you can complete the “Laptop Transfer of Ownership” on any computer (it will not work on your phone), as long as you have an internet connection.

After graduation, Seton Hall University will no longer be liable for any future use of the machine, the repair or maintenance of hardware or the upgrade/reinstall of software. In no event shall the University be liable for any incidental, special, indirect, or consequential damage of whatever nature.

In addition to signing the “Laptop Transfer of Ownership” Agreement, it is your responsibility to follow the instructions in the How to remove your laptop from the SHU Domain document, and remove your laptop off the Seton Hall domain. This removes all the restrictions on your laptop, and does not affect any of your data or pre-installed software.

Instructions to Transfer Ownership of Your Laptop

  1. On your computer, open the Laptop Transfer of Ownership form. (If this doesn't work, sign-in to PirateNet, open the ServiceNow app and in the Self Service box, select Laptop Transfer of Ownership)
  2. Enter your Seton Hall ID (located on the back of your ID card) and the serial number of your laptop (Do not enter any dashes) and it is always the number “0,” not the letter “O” . Serial numbers are the 7 or 8 digits after S/N on the bottom of your laptop.
  3. Click Submit
  4. The “Transfer of Ownership” form will appear, review it, sign and submit.
  5. A confirmation page will appear showing that you properly submitted the “Transfer of Ownership” agreement and additional instruction on to do next.
  6. Students who successfully complete the Laptop Transfer of Ownership Agreement will receive a confirmation email.
