When should I return my laptop?
The laptop computer and accessories must be returned when a student does not maintain continuous enrollment of qualifying undergraduate credits at UW-Stout, graduates, withdraws, is dismissed from the University, or upon any other notification to turn in the computer. In the summer, a student may retain their laptop if they are enrolled for qualifying UW-Stout undergraduate credits for the fall term.
Where do I return it?
The laptop computer and accessories must be returned to the Technology Help Desk (109 Sorensen Hall) or another location designated by the University.
If the student is not on campus, it is still their responsibility to return the computer to the Technology Help Desk.

Please note: Any damages incurred during shipping are the responsibility of the sender. The eStout program requires that you insure the laptop for $1,000 when shipping it to UW-Stout. Please include your name and student ID number in the shipping box when returning the laptop.
What if I don't return the laptop on time?
If the computer is not returned within the stated time frame, the University may, at its discretion, place a hold on that student's university record, bill them for the replacement cost of the computer and/or a $400 fee, or file a loss claim with the University's insurance company which would initiate repossession or police investigative action.
Students who are leaving the university are encouraged to complete the Exit Survey. Data from the survey will be collected and shared with appropriate administrators for decision-making purposes. All responses will remain anonymous.
