Laptop Initiatives

COVID-19 brought unique and challenging circumstances for students, so UCA wants to help.  Eligible students who cannot purchase a working computer may apply to get one free.

The federal CRRSA Act funds this initiative.  We have a very limited supply of laptops for the Fall 2021 semester; therefore, you must meet the requirements for the individual program to apply.
