I already own a computer. Do I have to buy another one?
We believe that this package represents an extraordinary value that cannot be duplicated with discounting available to the general public. CBU receives volume discounts, and those savings are passed on to the students.

For those students who own similar computers, there is a petition available here that must be completed and approved before a student will be able to opt out of the purchase program. Proof of software titles needed for the music program may be required before the petition is approved. All petitions are considered on a case-by-case basis.

I have more questions. Who can I contact?
