Student Financial Aid
The cost of purchasing a laptop is built into the first year cost of attendance budget. First year students seeking financial assistance to purchase a laptop should apply for financial aid at http://www.umdnj.edu/studentfinancialaid. The purchase of the computer would be funded out of refund proceeds generated for living expenses. The amount of individual refunds will vary based upon the amount of financial aid requested. For more information, please visit the student financial aid web site.
During new student orientation, IST, End User Services will configure your laptop for wireless computing and install Symantec Endpoint Protection software.
Current students who require wireless laptop configuration should consult the Wireless Computing page for further instructions.
