Device Distribution - Update
The York College Distance-Learning Chromebook and iPad request service is now available. If you are eligible to receive a laptop, you will receive an email to schedule a pick-up. At the time of pick up, only 25 people per hour will be allowed in at a time. This restriction is for personal safety and to maintain effective social distancing mandates. The email will explain in detail what to expect and what to bring with you.
Please review the eligibility criteria found on the “Distance-Learning Equipment Needs Assessment” page to see if you are eligible before making a request. Only eligible students will get the follow-up email to schedule a pick up. If you already own technology that works for your distance learning, do not enter a request even if you meet the criteria. The goal is to serve our students who have the most need.
We will try our very best to accommodate all who need a device to work remotely.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Dear York College Students:
We know many of you are emailing and calling about access to devices over the last week as we transition to distance learning. There is plans to distribute iPads and Chromebooks for students in need of distance - learning technology. Devices have been ordered and expected to arrive at a central location initially between March 27th and April 1st. And then distributed to our campus.
York students who don't currently have a wifi enabled device may qualify to receive one. Interested students must fill out a Distance-Learning Equipment Request Assessment, this link will available UNTIL TUESDAY NOON. Students who qualify after they have taken a survey will be directed to make an appointment online to schedule the pick up and signoff for their wifi enabled device. Students who do not qualify will be given a chance to appeal in order that a thorough review is done which provides everyone with a fair chance to receive these devices. Please note:
- Each unit will be tested, sanitized, asset tagged and come with a user guide and a loaner agreement that will be placed inside the box for signature. iPads will come with a protected case. There will be processes in place to ensure social distancing and protection for all parties during pick up.
Information Technology Services will continue to provide updates on this and other critical distance-learning related information as we approach the delivery of these much needed tools.
