Please contact ETS if you have any questions regarding the equipment or its capabilities. ETS staff will train you on the operation of any equipment if you are unfamiliar with its use.


Laptop/Broadband Card Checkout Guidelines

ETS maintains a small pool of laptops and broadband (air) cards for checkout to faculty and staff for college-related work while traveling and for local use to support college-related presentations and events. The pool was not created to support telecommuting, taking online classes or working from home.

  1. Local Use: For college-related presentations and events, faculty and staff may check out a laptop and/or broadband card for 24 hours. Longer checkout times may be arranged with advanced notice by the employee’s supervisor and will depend on current availability of equipment.
  2. School-Related Travel: For college-related travel, faculty and staff may check out a laptop and/or broadband card for seven (7) days. Longer checkout times may be arranged with advanced notice by the employee’s supervisor depending on current availability of equipment.
  3. Late Returns: If an employee returns equipment late more than two times in a semester, ETS reserves the right to cancel check out privileges for that person for the remainder of the semester.

ETS is happy to provide this service for faculty and staff and we appreciate everyone’s understanding and adherence to these guidelines so that we can provide equitable support for all the college’s employees.
