Dell Customer Care Service:
All MTC students are eligible to purchase one laptop through e-Campus with Financial Aid monies during their enrollment at Marion Technical College. Leftover Financial Aid after tuition is paid, will be held at e-Campus where the laptop can be purchased at the same time as textbooks, once Financial Aid is released to e-Campus. A credit card will be held on file through e-Campus to ensure payment for laptop by the student, should the students drop before the drop date, at that time the credit card will be charged for the laptop. While ‘Financial Aid’ funds can be used to purchase laptops, it is STRONGLY encouraged to purchase your required course materials first.
When placing orders, do know computers cannot be shipped to or held for pickup at Marion Technical College. Shipments come directly from the vendor. Orders are typically shipped within 5-7 business days.
Should the laptop be defective or break, the student will be referred to the Return and Service Policy provided by e-Campus. Should the student change majors and need a laptop with higher specs (i.e. Health Information Technology to Engineering), the student will be referred to the program advisor (Business Advisor in this example) to the new program advisor (Engineering Advisor in this example) where the new program advisor will verify the student’s computer meets the program requirements.
Note: Tablets, iPads, MacBooks, and Chromebooks will not meet the laptop requirements as they are unable to run Microsoft 365 ProPlus.
Laptop requirements will be put on the Marion Technical College Computer Requirements webpage and updated yearly or as-needed basis. While ‘Financial Aid’ funds can be used to purchase laptops, it is STRONGLY encouraged to purchase your required course materials first. Please take note of the important information below.
