Should you decide to terminate your course of studies, it can mean two things: Either you cease your course or you have graduated. If you decide not to choose a main enrollment, but an secondary enrollment, or you decide to (temporarily) interrupt your course, that will also be regarded as course cessation.
Once you have graduated, the obligation becomes null and void, and the rest of total “loan due” will be demanded at once. After that, your machine has been totally paid for. However, it is not possible at this stage to sell the notebook back to the TU/e.
The rule stating that after course cessation, the IMS Services Student will remove the IT facilities from the notebook, applies here too. However, you are allowed to keep your operating software.
Make sure that you hand in your notebook to have the software deleted at the IMS Services Student within five working days after your deregistration. If you fail to do this within the stipulated time, you will incur administration costs of € 50 for every month that you hand in your notebook/software after the stipulated time period.
If you decide to terminate your course prematurely, there are two possibilities:
- You sell your notebook back to the TU/e and will receive the purchase amount pro rata (a condition is that it is a main enrollment that is ended)
- If repairs are necessary, these costs will be substracted from the amount you receive.
- You keep the notebook and settle your obligation pro rata
If you are no longer a student, you also no longer have the right to the IT facilities (internet and e-mail access and the use of software). Therefore, these will be removed from the notebook. After the termination of your course, the IMS Services Student will see to this.
The TU/e is obliged to remove these facilities, due to the stipulations in the contract between the TU/e and Surf (higher education co-operation organization) and other software suppliers. The contract states that these facilities are provided exclusively to TU/e employees and TU/e students.
In both cases, make sure that you hand in your notebook to have the software deleted at IMS Services/Student within five working days after your deregistration. If you fail to do this within the stipulated time, you will incur administration costs of € 50 for every month that you hand in your notebook/software after the stipulated time period.
