Can I upgrade my SCI computer?

Only those items listed in the SCI store are available through the SCI program. There are no upgrades, accessories, or changes to the SCI models available unless they are listed as an option in the store.
Once you have received the computer you can upgrade the model by adding additional memory, storage, or peripherals. You will need to purchase these items outside of the SCI program and take care of the upgrades yourself, but you can seek advice from the OIT Help Desk or the OIT Solution Center in Frist Campus Center.
