Laptops and Hardware
Laptop (e-Learning) Program
Students in laptop (e-Learning) programs are assigned a SAIT-issued laptop or device with the necessary software, files and applications needed for their studies. E-Learning students are required to use this as part of their program.
SAIT classrooms are outfitted with power, network plug-ins and/or wifi for students to access online resources during class. Students will use their laptop or device to complete assignments, review course material or possibly complete exams. Details relating to course delivery are program-dependent, so please consult with the applicable program administrators for specific information.
Although e-Learning programs do have some distance delivery features, they are in-class and instructor-guided — attendance is required.
Tuition or confirmation of a student loan must be confirmed, as well as a $400 refundable security deposit paid prior to pick-up. Please ensure you have your SAIT student ID ready.
