Training, Retaining, and Uplifting African-American Males to Produce Educational Triumphs

How the TRUMPET Laptop & Internet Access Lending Program works

The TRUMPET Laptop Lending Program has over 300 laptops available for checkout by NETC students. Laptops checkouts are for the duration of the semester and are issued on a first-come, first-serve basis. Additionally, modems and hotspots are available from Spectrum and Sandhills. 

Internet Access Service is currently available to students in Chesterfield, Marlboro, and Dillon counties. The Laptop and Internet Access Request Form below contains a request form for Spectrum internet. If you would like to request internet services from Sandhills, please Click Here

The TRUMPET Lending Library operates like this…

     --- We loan you a laptop

     --- You use the laptop

     --- You return the laptop

     --- We loan the laptop to another student

In order for our laptop lending program to remain successful, it is vital that all participants use and return the laptop.

The Laptop and Internet Access Loan Process in 4 Easy Steps

Step 1: Qualify

In order to participate in the TRUMPET Laptop and Internet Access Lending Program, students must meet all of the following criteria:

  1.   Must be currently enrolled at Northeastern Technical College.
  2.   Must not have any outstanding NETC debts.
  3.   Must have an NETC ID

Step 2: Complete a Laptop and Internet Access Request Form

No Laptop Request Form, No Laptop

Laptops are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. In order to receive a laptop, a student must submit a laptop request.


Please Note: Submission of a laptop request form does not guarantee the availability of laptops.


Step 3: Review and Sign Contract

Meet with a PBI Staff member to review and sign the lending agreement.  Once the agreement is signed, the student will be able to leave with the laptop and/or internet access equipment (dependent upon if internet service is available at home address).

Laptops and internet access equipment can be picked up at any of the following locations:

     --- Bennettsville Campus | PBI One-Stop Center (Room 112A)

     --- Cheraw Campus | PBI One-Stop Center (Room 812)

     --- Dillon Campus | PBI One-Stop Center (Room 112A)

     --- Pageland Campus | PBI One-Stop Center (Room 112)






Step 4: Return Laptop

Laptop checkouts are for the duration of the semester. All laptops are due back by the last day of final exams. Failure to return laptops by the due date will result in the laptops going in lost status and a debt, consisting of the cost of the laptop and accessories, charged to the student's account, and remaining until the property is returned.
