It is important that students determine their access to appropriate technology and internet resources to successfully complete their courses.
Devices: If you already have or will be purchasing a laptop or other device, please be sure to review this site for recommended specifications and purchasing options: www.rowan.edu/laptop. In addition, students are encouraged to consult with their academic advisors about any recommended technologies suggested for their major. Note that some online and local vendors may also provide the option to rent a device. Students are also encouraged to have headsets and webcams to facilitate participating in class.
Internet: While both commuters and campus residents can freely use Rowan’s wi-fi, in the event of a campus closure, students must ensure that they have access to the internet to complete coursework remotely. We encourage you to consult with your internet provider to ensure service is possible where and when you need it. If you do not currently have access to wi-fi, many providers offer service at affordable rates.
Financial assistance for technology:
Plan your financial aid package and/or use of refund to purchase technology. The Financial Aid office can help you plan: https://sites.rowan.edu/financial-aid/
Students with emergency financial needs can apply for the Student Emergency Fund here: https://sites.rowan.edu/deanofstudents/forms/emergencyfunds.html
Apply for CARES funding as soon as possible. These funds may be used to purchase technology.
Students who are not sure how they can access appropriate technology due to affordability can email email@example.com for assistance. The Dean of Students office is located in Suite 210, Chamberlain Student Center.
