Step 4: Pay Laptop Deposit

One of the great benefits of being a Lawrence Tech Undergraduate student is that you are supplied a powerful laptop or tablet computer customized with all the software you'll need for your particular program of study. All undergraduate students who attend O & R will be given the opportunity to pick up their laptop during the O & R program. We recommend paying the laptop deposit prior to O & R for a faster and smother distribution of your laptop. Below are the steps that need to be taken to pick up your laptop (these steps will vary slightly depending on if you are under 18 years old on the day you pick up your laptop). Everyone will need to:


  1. Pay the $500 laptop deposit using one of the following methods:
    a)  Before O & R – Call Pat Day at 248.204.2175 to pay by credit card. We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express.
    b)  During O & R – Pay in person by cash, credit, or check (payable to Lawrence Technological University)

  2. After you register for classes, sign the laptop contract. If you are under 18 on the day you pick up your laptop, you should review and sign the contract  prior to attending O & R and know that both you and your parent will be required to sign the contract in order to receive your laptop. If you are over 18 on the day you pick up your laptop, you will be required to sign an online laptop contract at O & R. 


Students who do not pick up their laptop during O & R will be able to pick it up at the designated laptop distribution dates for the Fall 2018 semester. In order to use financial aid to pay the laptop deposit, you will be required to wait until laptop distribution dates before classes begin. Prior to picking up your laptop you will need to visit the financial aid office for approval.
