Teaching, Learning and Communication (TLC)
All full-time NMU undergraduate students (registered for 12 or more credit hours) are supplied with a ThinkPad® notebook computer with a standard set of applications, including Microsoft Office, and 24-hour local access to the campus network (including the Internet) as part of tuition and fees. Art and design majors will be issued an Apple® notebook computer instead of a ThinkPad for an additional fee of $200 per semester.

What To Expect
A few weeks before your first semester begins, new students will receive a Teaching, Learning and Communication Initiative information mailing. The mailing will include an agreement along with information on the assigned day, time and place to pick up the computer. Distribution will begin within five days of the beginning of the semester.
At the distribution, a variety of computer setup and training options will be available. There will also be computer accessories available from the NMU Bookstore. The NMU Bookstore offers inexpensive printers, drives for backup and storage, bags and cabling to support the computer.
