If you have a used TI-84+SEC in good working order, you should not purchasing the newer model. You may also want to source the older model from a retailer that may still have in inventory. Please ensure it is the correct model (TI-84 Plus or TI-84 Plus CE) . The two models (Plus CE & Plus) are equivalent and will work fine for students.

Parents can also use the High School online fee payment system to order and pay for the calculator.
