Realizing that one-size may not quite fit all, we will evaluate requests for computers with additional components. On a separate page, please provide a detailed list of components that are essential to your use of the computer, but are not included in the standard system, as well as a justification for the items. As best you can, provide an itemized list of the additional costs that would be incurred by these components.
11. Signature of the department chairperson (for informational purposes only). The chairperson may wish to add comments regarding the importance of the requested machine to the department’s programs.
