Damaged, Lost, or Stolen Equipment

Students are completely responsible for all issued equipment, including the laptop, AC adapter, and all accessories. Equipment that is defective will be replaced free of charge under the warranty, but damages caused by the student must be paid in full. In addition, in case of loss or theft, the insurance deductible of $1,000 must also be paid in full.

Warranty Overview
Theft and Loss

Repair Costs

The cost of repairs varies depending on the extent of the damage, the laptop model, and other factors. The most common repair case is that of a laptop that has fallen off of a bunk or lofted bed. This will often crack the laptop case and screen, both of which are costly repairs. Repairs can range in cost from less than $100 to the full $1,000 deductible.

Reporting Damage, Loss, or Theft

All theft incidents must be reported to the Department of Campus Safety and a copy of the report they provide must be submitted to the IMT Support Desk within 48 hours of the incident.

Billing and Payment Options

Invoices are issued to the student via intracampus mail and state the replacement or repair fee for the equipment in question. Payments should be made at Cashiering Services (East Campus), after which the receipt duplicate and invoice should be submitted to the IMT Support Desk. You will receive your repaired equipment or replacement laptop once all fees are paid. During the interim, a loaner laptop will be issued to you.

At this time, IMT cannot charge repair or replacement fees to student financial accounts. Students who need to use funds on their accounts to pay for these fees must speak with their Student Financial Services counselor. Once clearance is received, please ask the counselor to contact the Laptop Program coordinator in IMT Student Services.
