The laptop is intended for academic use only. Any use of the laptop for other purposes is not authorized by IVC.

IVC is not responsible for the loss of any data, regardless of the cause. The borrower is strongly encouraged to use removable media such as a flash drive to store work. All data on the laptop will be deleted upon its return.
The borrower is responsible for the safe return of the laptop to the Office of Technology
Services. The laptop must be returned on or before:

IVC reserves the right to require the return of the laptop at any time prior to the end of the term if the student becomes ineligible or violates the Terms & Conditions.
A late fee ($25/day) will be charged to the borrower’s account for returning the laptop and/or hotspot after the due date. If the laptop and/or hotspot is not returned for any reason, or if the laptop and/or hotspot is returned with damage, the borrower will be held financially responsible for the full cost of the laptop, which is $1,100.
If there is a need to make any changes to the laptop or you encounter any problems with the devices and its accessories, you must work directly with the IVC Technology Services Office.
At no time are you allowed to reconfigure the laptop, download, modify or delete any functions to the equipment.
You are responsible for the return of all borrowed equipment by the stated deadline or a hold will be placed on your records.
The returned laptop with charger must be in good working condition. If the equipment is returned in a damaged condition, you will be held responsible for current replacement costs and a hold will be placed on your college record until the item has been paid for.
The Technology Services Office staff has the right to take possession of the equipment at any time without prior notice. If staff has reasonable grounds to believe the equipment is being used in violation of any policies, Irvine Valley College and/South Orange County Community College District (SOCCCD) Board policies and administration regulations, it will result in disciplinary action. We highly encourage students to reference both Board Policy 4014 and Administrative Regulation 5401.
