Equipment Checkout Rules and Regulations

Eligibility for Equipment Use

ENROLLMENT: A student must be enrolled in at least one class in the Computer Art department to be eligible to checkout equipment from the Cage. Montgomery equipment is dedicated only for students with the following majors, minors, or even double majors: Motion Media, Animation, Visual Effects, and Interactive Design and Gaming Development. Students taking CMPA classes may check out a limited few types of equipment.

VALID ID: A student must present a validated SCAD student ID with a sticker of the current quarter (e.g. Fall 2020) for any checkouts. Validation stickers can be obtained at Turner House and Propes Hall 1st Floor. No validated SCAD student ID, no checkout. Other forms of identifications (passport, SAM’s membership card, driver’s license) are not acceptable. All students checking out equipment must appear on the Computer Art roster.

There are no “first-time warnings.” It is a privilege to have access to this equipment, hence you must take the time to familiarize yourself with cage policies and be sure to take care of the equipment so other students will have access to it as well.
In each stated Case a Hold will be applied to the students account and they will no longer be allowed to checkout equipment. All fines will need to be paid before privileges are regained.
All Fines must be paid before you can regain equipment checkout privileges at the Bursar’s Office. Please bring a signed receipt back to the Cage in order to have your hold removed.
