In the fall of 2008, Rochester College became the first college in the state of Michigan to offer all undergraduate incoming freshmen an Apple MacBook absolutely free. Undergraduate students and transfers who enter Rochester College this fall with less than 30 semester credit hours will be eligible to receive the free MacBook Pro or an iPad.
It is one of the goals of the college to be sure that students are involved with the latest technology during their studies. Education and technology has developed over the years and Rochester College is on course with the more progressive colleges in the country. One of the primary goals with educational technology that Rochester College has achieved was to create a campus-wide wireless environment. This will provide the possibilities for tablet/laptop use in the classroom, library, grounds, virtually anywhere. In time as the technology becomes more tailored for faculty and student interaction, Rochester College will continue to enhance the tablet/laptop program.
This is your MacBook Pro or iPad. The warranty will be in your name. You will not have to return it when you graduate. Each student will be required to sign a iPad/MacBook Pro program agreement. If the student remains enrolled fulltime at Rochester College for at least 6 full semesters, (excluding summer semesters) no charge will be made for the iPad/MacBook Pro. If the student leaves before 6 full semesters the student will pay a prorated charge for the iPad/MacBook Pro.
