For The State University of New York at Fredonia Students
The Fredonia Student Computer Purchasing Program is a voluntary program that provides students with flexible options to purchase high-performance desktop and laptop computers at discounted prices. In partnering with Apple and Dell this program provides customers flexibility in determining an appropriate computer to best suit their needs. Customers can order their new computer and have it shipped to their residence hall or to their home address.
Fredonia provides computer and software purchasing information as a service to our students. Fredonia Information Technology Services (ITS) is not responsible for any transactions that take place between Fredonia students and the vendors listed here, nor does ITS provide support for this software or equipment.
