Funds for a Computer
Students may request that the Office of Financial Aid Services increase their budget, generally for their first year, to allow for the purchase of a computer system, if the student does not already own one. The maximum amount that will be allowed for such a purchase is $1500. The increase will allow the student to borrow additional funds (if the maximum amount of loan has not already been applied to the student's financial aid), or if the student has been awarded scholarships from outside sources, to use outside scholarship towards the purchase of a computer system. The change in the budget will not increase the amount of Whitman scholarship awarded to the student.
