Computer Replacement Program


The Computer Replacement Program 
has not been funded for the 2016-17 fiscal year.

This Program updates the primary office computers of eligible faculty and staff with new computers - at no cost to their departments. The goals of the program are to maximize system performance, realize efficiencies in operations, and reduce the high cost of maintaining older, out of warranty computers.

For 2015-16, the standard computer was a Dell Desktop or All-in-One computer with standard UTEP software pre-installed for you. Modifications to the standards are not available. Upgrades to the standard computers such as additional memory are possible and can be done once the computer arrives.

Requestor must be a UTEP employee with at least a 50% appointment in PeopleSoft. 

  Replacement must be for user's primary work computer.
Eligible person must not have requested a replacement in the last four years.

  Computer must be 4 years old or older on the date of the request and have a valid UTEP inventory tag. CHECK AGE
