Step 3: Check-In Laptop for Repair
1) Begin by filling out "Student Computer Repair Worksheet"
after warranty checks out and tech approves the repair
2) Have the student sign the "Service Agreement" on the back
3)Student may leave laptop with us or continue using it at their preference
4)Create ticket with information and add the number to the Repair WS
5)Give the laptop and Repair WS to the Tech on Duty
quicker to leave it
focus on top box (name, etc)
Final Notes
Many factors affect repair times-so don't estimate

Loaner Laptops are available for students/staff

For Faculty laptops, no paper work is needed

parts on back-order
spider webbing repairs
best to keep an eye on e-mail for updates
usually takes a little bit to set-up
ideal for aggravated users or extensive repairs
their laptops are property of the college
let the techs handle most of this
