Apple ID Setup

Creating your Apple ID before you receive your iPad will help you speed through setup. Check out the helpful links below to get started.

A few helpful notes:

  • We encourage you to use an email not associated with Ohio State when creating your AppleID. This will make it easier to use your device after you've graduated and will make sure you retain access to the account.
  • DO NOT share your password with anyone.
  • Be sure the physical address associated with your account is in the United States. If you do not have a current United States address you can use the address for the Student Academic Services Building: 281 W. Lane Ave Columbus, OH 43210.
  • Make sure you aren't sharing your AppleID with anyone else. If you have a family AppleID please create a new one.
