Wireless Hotspots & Laptops at Home

Get FREE, limited data Wi-Fi and/or a Laptop at home with Southern State's SmartSpot® program designed for students. The College is offering a limited number of free wireless hotspot devices, with data limits, and/or Laptops to students who do not have Internet access or a Laptop at home. The program enables students to "check out" Internet service or a Laptop for up to one semester at a time-absolutely free. Both the devices and monthly service fees are fully paid by Southern State.
