Laptops For Everyone!

Did you know that MC offers free laptop rentals?

Yup, it’s true! The general studies program is offering students whom are enrolled in online, or z-courses, a laptop for the semester. A z-course is when students have access to their textbooks online for free—thus a laptop is crucial to succeed in this type of class!

The laptops program is fairly new and they only have a limited number of laptops to give out, so make sure to contact the department as soon as possible!

Now, if you do not qualify or cannot get a laptop, do not freak out— you can also get laptops at any of the MC libraries! Each library offers computer use for 2 hour time periods and all you have to do is sign in with your MC log-in.

If you are an MC student and would like to rent a laptop, fill out this form https://goo.gl/forms/djFRSnx7GcevDbfI2 or email generalstudies@montgomerycollege.edu for more information!

You should never fail a class because you do not have all the resources you need to succeed! MC is here to make sure you have every opportunity to thrive!

The deadline is February 15th , so sign up quick!

I am a 19-year-old lifelong resident of Damascus, Maryland. I am in my 3rd semester as a part-time student at MC. I plan on getting my Associates Degree in the next couple of years and then transferring to the University of Maryland at the Universities at Shady Grove (health permitting).

MC has been my academic home for the past year and I could not be happier. I started off my collegiate experience at Salisbury University in the fall of 2015, but due to my Chronic Lyme Disease, I was forced to drop out. I thought my academic life was over, as I was too ill to handle a full course-load, but that is when I discovered the part-time option at MC. MC gave the choice to take as many, or as few classes as I wanted, and because of this, I am now back on track to getting my degree. MC also offered me disability support services to further assist me in accomplishing my dreams.

I hope that this blog can help other students like me to see that even though they may not be taking the “traditional” route towards higher education, MC offers load of opportunities that will get us where we want to go. Whether you aren’t sure where you want to end up in life, or have another obstacle, like a chronic illness or disability, you can still reach for the stars and accomplish anything they want to here at MC.

  1. Wow – actually I for one had no idea MC offers laptops for rent. I am curious on the specifics – cost to rent and returns. It’s great there is a few 2 hour opportunity at the library as well. Even if you have internet at home, things happen – like power outages etc. Thanks for the heads up!
