Incoming eligible students do not have to pay to receive the iPad kit. There is no upfront cost, and you will be able to keep your iPad and accessories free of charge once you complete a degree program. If you withdraw from Ohio State before completing a degree program, you will be asked to purchase the technology kit for its depreciated value or return it to the university.
Funding for the Digital Flagship program comes through Ohio State's focus on efficiencies within operational costs, creating a central pool of funds to be used for this student-focused initiative. More information can be found on the Office of Business and Finance website.
