Digital Learning Program
The Digital Learning Program at Minneapolis College
The Digital Learning Program was a program that started in 2020 at the onset of the pandemic. Its purpose was to equip students with the technology to help them achieve success while taking classes at Minneapolis College. The Digital Learning program offered a fully configured and supported checkout Windows laptop and free internet resource to those who qualify.
Due to lack of inventory and ongoing funding, the Digital Learning program was discontinued for new applicants as of Spring Semester 2023. Students with current checkout equipment can be renewed for additional semesters while they meet eligibility requirements. All internet service programs were terminated at the end of Spring 2023
Please visit these external resources that provide options for inexpensive/discounted laptops and internet for those who qualify:
PCs for People have available options for desktops, laptops, and internet (hotspots)
The national Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is also available directly to you via internet service providers. Please review the program details at: Get Internet | The White House

Please note: Devices received from PCs for People or any other external agency are considered personal devices and not directly affiliated with Minneapolis College. Computer support by Minneapolis College Information Technology Services is limited to assisting with local network connectivity, D2L connectivity, and Office 365.
