All full-time, non-probationary JMU employees are eligible to participate in this program. This is an interest free loan available to purchase hardware, software, or other computer accessories. All merchandise must be purchased from the JMU Bookstore. The current limit on the loan is $3600.00, and the repayment period cannot exceed twenty-four months. Repayment of the loan will be made in payments through payroll deduction on each paycheck.
The JMU Bookstore will consult with the employee on their purchase and when they have made a decision, a formal quote will be written. That quote will be forwarded to the AVP Business Services office and the employee will be instructed to contact that office. At that point, the employee will need to sign their computer loan agreement, which will be forwarded to the Bookstore for the order to be placed. If the item is in stock, the purchase can be picked up at that time.
Once the purchase is completed, the loan agreement will be forwarded to the payroll office to begin payroll deductions. Deductions will continue until the balance has been paid. Loans must be paid in full upon an employee's separation from JMU.
If you have any questions about this program, contact the Business Services Office at 540-568-5689.
