Free Loaner Chromebooks and WiFi Hotspots Available for Students in Need

Central Piedmont wants to do all it can to ensure it helps students achieve their academic goals. That's why the college is loaning Chromebooks and WiFi hotspots - at no cost - to students in need who are having trouble accessing technology.

Students can apply to receive one of the devices by completing the "Student and Employee Application for Laptop & Hotspots" or reading more about this opportunity on Central Piedmont's Single Stop Web page. Eligible students must be enrolled in a degree or transfer program for the fall semester. Students will be able to use these devices as long as they are enrolled in fall classes. 

Applications will be processed within 24 hours and devices will be mailed directly to students. Please note, Gambrell Scholars should not apply as there will be additional information regarding Chromebook distribution shared directly with scholars separately.  

Students needing assistance with the application or those without connectivity should call the Single Stop office at 704.330.6435 or email
