    Lending Procedure

    Students may request to borrow portable electronic devices. A request is made through the Disabilities Specialist. The borrowing period can be as short as a few hours or as long as a semester. Equipment is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. An item is borrowed with the understanding that the student is responsible for paying the replacement cost of the item if it is lost, stolen, or damaged. Failure to comply results in disciplinary action from the Office of the Vice President for Student Services.
