Exemption request to purchase other than university standard computer (faculty and staff)
An exemption form is required for faculty and staff to purchase a non-standard/off-list HP or an Apple in some departments.
The standardization of hardware offers efficiencies for both users and support entities. Standard models are selected to meet the needs of the majority of campus users and to streamline the selection and purchasing process. Deviating from the published list should be as a result of a software or specific performance need.
The Exemption request to purchase other than university standard computer form will be completed by a representative of the Learning and Information Technology department (typically the department's consultant) with input from the end user. The Chief Information Officer will have the final approval. See the form for additional details.
Computers purchased as exceptions can be expected to arrive in approximately 8 - 10 weeks and, depending on familiarity, additional time may be needed for imaging and setup.
