Laptop Service Agreement
To ensure the effective service and safe use of the laptop, Amridge University has partnered with a third party to ensure proper technical support and service for laptops. Amridge University will not service student laptops. All parts and services issues are covered by an extended servicing agreement. Students receive a 3-year service agreement through Lenovo that covers parts and services for the laptops.
Laptop Shipment and Restrictions
Students who choose to receive a laptop using Financial Aid Title IV, grants, and/or scholarship funds will be subject to course participation requirements. Laptops will be shipped by the third party vendor selected by the University to the address the student provided during Admission and Enrollment. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure his/her address is correct and up to date. The University will not ship laptops to addresses that do not match the student information system. In order to make an address update, students will need to visit the MyAmridge Portal to update their address before the laptop is shipped.
Shipment will occur as soon as the Financial Aid department has determined a student has participated as required by Title IV. Timing is based on your disbursement plan. Participation is defined as completion of coursework in each class in which they are enrolled. Most participation can be determined by the end of Week 2. Shipments will occur starting Week 3 and will continue on the Monday of each week. Delivery may take 5 – 7 days.
Students cannot pick up their laptop up at Amridge University. Students who pay the laptop technology fee, whether by Financial Aid payment or by personal credit card will receive their computer as soon as it has been determined that their registration fees, admission status, and financial aid status are in good standing with the University.
