New tech is now more affordable

Getting new tech is easier than ever before, thanks to a new benefit for current faculty and staff. Now you can shop for yourself, your family and your friends at the DoIT Tech Store and pay with a new option known as Payroll Deduction. This no-interest payment plan allows you to pay off your purchase in six or 12 months, via monthly deductions from your paycheck. Eligible employees just need to spend $400 or more and provide a 10 percent down payment at time of purchase to use Payroll Deduction. There is a nominal processing fee of $25.
