Student Laptop Loaners

Laptop computers are available for checkout to students for use at NWHSU. These laptops are intended as a short term temporary loan. They are intended to provide students access to a computer while on campus in the event that their personal computer is not working, did not bring it to campus, or just need access to a computer.

Student Laptop Loans Policy and Agreement

Each laptop is installed with NWHSU’s standard suite of programs, which includes Examsoft’s Examplify.

In order to borrow a laptop, you must fit the criteria and follow these rules:

  • You must be a current NWHSU Student with no holds on your record.
  • You must have a current validated NWHSU Student ID, as well as a photo ID such as a driver’s license, passport or State ID.
