CDS Laptop Program

Juniors, seniors, and graduate students in Communication Disorders and Sciences will need to access to a laptop computer for most class and clinic responsibilities.  The department strongly recommends purchase of the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge laptop through the University Bookstore. Computer specifications are compatible with running the required departmental software.  This computer comes with a 3-year warranty and service through the EIU Union Bookstore. Additionally, loaner computers are available should any repairs be necessary.

If a student opts to purchase a different laptop computer, it will be their responsibility to insure that the computer is compatible for requirements.  The CDS Department and university will make the appropriate programs available for use; however, it will be the student's responsibility to see that programs are loaded and ready to use. 

Laptop specifications can be found at the EIU Union Bookstore Website.
