Student Notebook Requirement


SUNY Geneseo requires incoming freshmen or undergraduate students who expect to graduate with the class of 2011 or later to bring a notebook computer to Geneseo.


This requirement has several benefits, including:

  • enabling students, faculty, and staff to take advantage of learning opportunities that exist only when every student in a classroom has a laptop
  • establishing a campus culture in which faculty and staff are increasingly willing and able to explore innovative and effective classroom and co-curricular uses of information technology
  • encouraging students to develop essential computer skills

Students are often eligible for discounts from online retailers. Financially disadvantaged students can apply for consideration for a notebook loan from the college. Students eligible for a Pell Grant with a FAFSA Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $0 can apply for the notebook loan.
