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.
Fall 2020 e-Learning laptop distribution
For the fall 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 email@example.com if you have any questions.
Students in an e-Learning program who are studying outside of Canada will be contacted by the International Centre or their academic chair with more information.
👉 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”.
Hours of operation
|Monday - Friday||9 am - 4 pm|
Please note: going forward students will have to provide their own laptop carrying cases. (A limited supply will be available at the SAIT Bookstore).
Returning your e-Learning laptop
Winter 2020 laptop returns
Graduating/withdrawing students: If you’re graduating or withdrawing at the end of the Winter 2020 semester, please hold onto your e-Learning laptop until SAIT reopens. In alignment with the Government of Alberta’s non-essential services guidelines, we are unable to facilitate laptop returns/refunds/purchases at this time. You will be notified by email once an updated return process is confirmed. Please watch your SAIT email for updates.
Continuing students: If you’re continuing in your SAIT program, please hold onto your laptop for future class use.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Helpline by email and include a phone number and your SAIT ID number.
