Withdrawing or Taking a Leave of Absense

Students Withdrawing from Bentley

If you are withdrawing from Bentley you have the option to return your notebook to the Computing Services Helpdesk or purchase it for the current buyout price. Please email your name and Bentley ID number to the Manager of the Mobile Computing Program at fbachofner@bentley.edu for the current buyout price.

Important Information

If you wish to purchase your notebook you must run the Leaving Bentley Checkout Utility (if you do not run this utility your notebook will go into reduced functionality mode after 180 days).

If you opt not to purchase your existing notebook you must return it along with the AC adapter, power cord, and two batteries to the Computing Services Helpdesk.  If your notebook computer is not returned prior to the first day of classes of the semester, you will be responsible for $300 of the $600 technology fee up through the sixth week of the semester.  After the sixth week, you are responsible for the full $600 technology fee.

Students Taking a Leave of Absence

If you take a leave of absence from Bentley, you have two options available to you:

  1. Retain your notebook computer while on leave. If you choose this option, you must print out and complete the Waiver to Retain Mobile Computer on Leave of Absence Form.

    Mail the completed form to:
    Computing Resource Center
    Bentley University
    175 Forest Street, Library 040
    Waltham, MA  02452-4705

    Note: If we do not receive your waiver form or your notebook computer within two weeks of the effective date of your leave of absence you will be charged a non-refundable charge equal to the fair market value of your notebook computer.

  2. Return your notebook computer, AC adapter, power cord, and two batteries to the Computing Services Helpdesk before leaving Bentley. If the notebook computer is not returned prior to the first day of classes, you will be responsible for $300 of the $600 technology fee up through the sixth week of the semester. After the sixth week, you are responsible for the full $600 technology fee. When you return to Bentley, contact the Computing Services Desk to obtain a Bentley-issued notebook. This notebook will not be the same notebook that you returned. Instructions to mail a notebook computer to Bentley University.
