George Brown College, School of Financial Services

As many are aware, For both majors in the Financial Services degree, in exchange for an annual notebook fee, students will receive a notebook computer pre-loaded with all the necessary software and fully supported by the college. The annual notebook fee is $1,000, plus a one time, refundable $400 deposit due in the third semester.

We understand that the notebooks play an integral role in our learning experience. However the cost of education is unforgiving, paying $3,000 to lease a notebook computer for 3 academic years with no residual value is truly adding insult to injury.

We the undersigned, respectfully call upon the School of Financial Services at George Brown College to eliminate the mandatory lease of notebooks.

We propose that George Brown College allow us to purchase our own laptops. We ask that the college give the students the product specifications to ensure software compatibility.
