The Dell Student Laptop Program

Students who participated in the Dell laptop purchase program will receive additional technical support from the Connection Center over the four-year warranty coverage of their Dell laptop (sign-ups are no longer being accepted for this program). As participants in the program, students are entitled to the following services:

  • Complete software restoration for serious problems.
  • Full hardware repair.
  • Access to a loaner laptop should their computer require a major repair.

Any service that does not fall in to one of the above categories is not supported by the Connection Center and students will be advised to seek remedy and resolution with their equipment vendor.
