Laptop loans available, prepare in advance for checking out process

When the college reopens, WSCC Library staff will issue laptops to all laptop applicants. No appointment will be required. We plan to issue these laptops as quickly as possible until all applicants have a laptop. The library will contact the applicants by phone with instructions.

Wallace State offers laptops on loan for students who are currently enrolled and taking classes. Laptops are available at the Wallace State Library, but please make sure you read the following information before visiting the library to check out a laptop.

  1. Only currently enrolled students may get a laptop and no one else may check it out for them. Faculty, staff, friends, and relatives cannot check them out for other people.
  2. Students must have a Lion card or clinical ID to check out any material in the library, including a laptop. Get your Lion card at Lion Central in the Bailey Center.
  3. Students must have a paper copy of their schedule as proof of their current enrollment status.
  4. Students need to know their WSCC email and password in order to load approved software to the laptop.
  5. Only Chrome, Microsoft Office Suite, and Respondus will be preloaded on the laptops.
  6. An online application must be completed  and submitted.
  7. There is a 24 hour wait period once the application is physically received by the Library. After the 24 hour wait period the applicant will be notified by email with an appointment time to issue a laptop. (holidays and closings will extend this waiting period) 
  8. Applications will only be held for three days. (holidays and closings will extend this holding period)
