Returning the Raspberry Pi Kit

Thank you for your patience as we develop a safe, contact-less return policy for the Raspberry Pi kits issued for the Spring 2020 CSC 3210 course.

We still have a few kits that have not yet been returned. If you have not returned your kit due to a pandemic-related reason, please contact the Computer Science Tech Support as soon as possible. We will need your first and last name, GSU email address, and kit number in order to proceed.

The contact-less return option will remain until further notice. Late kit return exceptions may be granted by your professor.

Digitally cleaning the devices are no longer required for return.

For Returns, use the following procedure to return the physical device to the department:

  • Contact-less returns are no longer available. However, socially distanced returns are possible throughout the semester.
  • Please open a ticket at https://cscit.cs.gsu.edu/support/ with your name, email, and kit # to schedule a kit return.
  • Once returned, the devices will be retrieved, checked, and marked as received.

Optionally, you may choose to complete the procedure to digitally clean the device prior to return:

  • Format the PI (after you are done with assignment 5)…
    To do this, you will need an SD card reader on your laptop…
    Choose one of the following:

    • Windows (32GB cards and under)
      1. Download the SD Association's Formatting Tool from https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/eula_windows/
      2. Install and run the Formatting Tool on your machine
      3. Check that the SD card you inserted matches the one selected by the Tool
      4. Click the “Format” button

    • Mac (32GB cards and under)
      1. Download the SD Association's Formatting Tool from https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/eula_mac/
      2. Install and run the Formatting Tool on your machine
      3. Select “Overwrite Format”
      4. Check that the SD card you inserted matches the one selected by the Tool
      5. Click the “Format” button

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about your Pi kit return, feel free to contact the Computer Science Tech Support and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please do not send an email directly to the CS System Administrator; you will be directed to open a ticket with Computer Science Tech Support instead.
