About the Program

Lorain County Community College recognizes the need students have for personal computer access to be successful in completing college work.

  2. You must have a working phone number and email address for contact.
  3. Demonstrate that you cannot afford to purchase a personal computer.
  4. Do not have a personal computer in your home or be a prior recipient.
  5. Be willing to learn basic computer system operations, by enrolling in the following 2-hour non-credit course (NCPS 010 at a cost of $5) to learn hands-on basic computer system operations, set-up and troubleshooting. If selected to receive a computer system, you will be provided with the course enrollment form.
  6. Agree to acquire the machine at the end of the NCPS 010 class.
