Affordable Connectivity Program

Due to a pause in federal funding, applications for this program are not currently being accepted.

Ramapo College, in partnership with Emerald Coast Wireless, has been able to provide students who meet certain eligibility requirements with a free tablet and monthly internet service on the provided tablet at no cost to the student.

The tablet is to be kept by students and does not need to be returned. The internet service works similarly to mobile data on a cell phone and allows the tablet to also be used as a mobile hotspot to give other devices a connection to the internet.

If you have any questions, please email!
