Computer Replacement Fund
Eligible faculty and staff computers are typically replaced every 4 years through the Computer Replacement Fund.
- Locate the Property of Macalester College sticker on your laptop or desktop and note its 5-digit ID number.
- Compare the ID number of your device with the fiscal year of replacement range given below to get an idea of when your computer is up for replacement.
- Replacements take place throughout the year, in ascending order by ID number: higher numbers will be replaced later in the fiscal year.
- This schedule only applies to computers with a blue computer-replacement-fund-eligible sticker.

Where appropriate, this fund helps defray computer replacement costs due to theft. It may also refurbish and reallocate computer equipment to meet campus needs.
