Students in e-Learning programs at SAIT are supplied with a laptop or device with the necessary software, files and applications needed for their program. Details will be provided by your program or Academic Chair.
e-Learning programs include:
Log in to your e-Learning laptop
Username: acdm\SAIT ID without leading zeros (123456)
Default password: birthdate, YYMMDD
⚙️ Your computer login password is the same as your SAIT email and Office 365 password. This is also the password you use to log in to SAIT wireless. If you change your password for one, you change your password for the others as well. Always change your password from the default after you log in the first time.
Collecting your e-Learning laptop
Tuition or confirmation of a student loan, as well as a $400 refundable security deposit, must be paid before pick up.
Winter 2021 e-Learning laptop distribution
For the winter semester, SAIT is sending e-Learning laptops via courier to new students within Canada who have been fully admitted to their program, have paid their tuition/fees, and have completed and returned a digitally signed e-Learning contract. You will receive an email with details, along with the contract, soon. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. If fees/tuition are paid after the December 8th deadline, or if the email from email@example.com is not actioned, there may be a delay in receiving the laptop prior to the start of classes.
Students in an e-Learning program who are studying outside of Canada will also be emailed an e-Learning contract, but the laptops will be set up on campus for the students to access remotely.
👉 Where is my contract?
Check your email for a message from firstname.lastname@example.org which includes a PDF contract. This contract is customized to you and your new laptop, so you will need to complete that document. It may be in your junk mail folder.
If you cannot find the email, contact email@example.com and use the subject line “e-Learning laptop contract issue” and we will resend your contract.
👉 How do I sign my contract?
Your contract is a fillable PDF form and can be opened with Adobe Reader, which is free and available for computers and smart phones. Click on the fields to edit them or check the box and then save the file. If you’re having difficulty, check for Adobe Reader updates. Again, if that doesn’t work, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and use the subject line “e-Learning laptop contract issue”.
