On-Campus Transfer

If the computer is being transferred to another university employee or student employee, we recommend you use ITAC’s Re-Image Services to reload the operating system and standard software. If you intend to transfer the computer as is, a Software License Assignment (DOC) Form must be submitted.

Also, if the computer is being transferred to a different responsible cost center, an Electronic Transfer Request must be submitted.

Transfer for Disposal

All stored data remains on your computer even after you delete files, empty the trash, or reformat drives.

Drive destruction also keeps users from violating campus software license agreements which protects employees and the university. Complete an Electronic Transfer Request to transfer equipment for disposal.


Materials Management and Logistics lists two guides regarding the Electronic Transfer Request process:

If software is being transferred from the old computer to another computer, submit a Software License Assignment (DOC) Form.
