Computer Replacement Program (CRP) Support

NOTICE: The Computer Replacement Program (CRP) will not be offered in FY21 due to COVID related budget reductions. The IT division has set aside limited funding for CRP-eligible faculty or staff with urgent situations such as computer hardware failure. ITAC will attempt to exhaust all other means of repair or replacement before purchasing new computers.

The current plan is to reinstate CRP for FY22 at half of its original funding. CRP funds will be available to divisions and colleges as computer allocations. In FY23, the program is expected to return to full funding.

Thank you for your patience as we overcome this economic situation together. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the IT Assistance Center.

Guide to Selecting the Right Fit for Texas State Users

Business Essentials

  • Those who require the basics.
  • Employees who primarily use their computers to check email, work with Microsoft Office products, access the Internet, access shared network resources, and work in SAP and Banner.

Flexible Use

  • Those who require a higher level of performance.
  • These computers are well equipped and more than sufficient for the most demanding faculty and staff. They have more memory and processing power over the Business Essentials line and have increased graphics rendering capabilities.

Advanced Workstations

  • Those who run processor and memory intensive programs.
  • These users require memory intensive applications like video and photo editing software, ArcGIS, Mathematica, AutoCAD (and other engineering software), VMware, and 64-bit applications.
