Full-time employees who have worked for two years are eligible for full financing up to a maximum purchase of $4,500. Payments are made via payroll deduction at 0% interest over 24months. Those who have not worked here for two years (but have successfully completed their three-month/six-month Orientation Period) are required to make a down payment of 1/3 of the purchase price, with the balance to be paid through payroll deduction over 24 months. The employee must be in good financial standing with the College, i.e. no outstanding payments owed for more than 30 days in the College Store, no outstanding parking fines, library fines or travel advances. Employees currently on probation will not be eligible for this benefit.
Please Note: Employees may only take out one computer loan at a time (even if the maximum allowed has not been met). If you have any questions about this, please call the HR Office at ext. 6202 before purchasing the second computer.
To begin your computer contract, provide your original paid receipt/invoice or an official quote from the computer vendor. A contract will be drawn up for your signature along with a check request that will be forwarded to Accounts Payable. Note: Accounts Payable has a 7 to 10 day window to process all check requests, so please plan accordingly. If you have additional questions regarding your computer purchase, please contact Human Resources at 337-6202 (or dial x6202) for details.
Currently, the best prices can be obtained by purchasing computer goods directly from computer vendors. The Information Resources Department will answer questions about computer and peripheral recommendations and purchases by calling 337-6601 (or dial ext. 6601).
