Need a Computer for a Fulltime New Hire?

Posted in: Hardware Equipment, IT Services, News

In an effort to streamline the process for requesting computers for New Hires under the Computer Lifecycle Replacement program, we moved the request process into our ServiceNow system. Requests can only be made after a New Hire has activated their NetID prior to their start at Montclair State University.  All requests are subject to approval, and distribution dates are dependent on equipment availability. For these reasons, we ask that you process requests as far in advance as possible.

  • You can find the step-by-step instructions here.

What is the Computer LifeCycle Replacement Program?

In order to ensure that University personnel have access to the current computing technology required to fulfill the responsibilities of their jobs, the “Computer Lifecycle Replacement Program” was instituted in 2003. The program provides for scheduled replacement of computers for full-time faculty, full-time staff, and specified computing laboratory facilities every 60 months. These requests are considered computers that are assigned as primary computers to the user and are not grant-funded, start-up,  or departmental computers.

Are there specific computers that I can choose from?

Yes, the University has standardized on a specific PC Laptop configuration that has been reviewed and approved by the Computer Lifecycle Committee. The program allows for a user to select from other non-standard configurations but in order to be considered, a valid justification that states the business case for a non-standard config must be submitted for approval.
