The Technology Access Equity Program at WSU Tri-Cities helps students who are unable to purchase their own computer, or access a computer that meets their educational needs. Students are able to rent out a computer for one semester at a time, but may be renewed for future semesters if there is still a demonstrated need.
This program wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Associated Student of Washington State University Tri-Cities. The goal of the program is help students find access to technology to support their educational success.
To rent a laptop, students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours and be fee-paying students. Students must demonstrate a need or hardship to have a laptop. The Student Hardship Committee will review all requests.
It will be the responsibility of the student renting the computer to return the computer in original condition. All technology support must go through information technology at the WSU Tri-Cities campus.
