Am I eligible for an iPad?

Digital Flagship is no longer distributing iPad technology kits. Please see information about changes made to the program for more details. 

Do I have to pay for the technology kit?

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.

Can I take the iPad home over breaks?

Yes. You're welcome to take the device home with you over breaks. 

Who owns the devices?

The devices will be university property while you're at Ohio State.  When you graduate all Ohio State management will be removed and ownership of the device will transfer to you. 

What if I withdraw or transfer from Ohio State?

If you withdraw or transfer from Ohio State you will be required to return the equipment and all related accessories, or purchase the equipment at its depreciated value as established by the university.

How do I get help with my iPad if it's not working?

What if I need to use assistive technology?

The Office of Disability Services is also available to help any student with assistive technology needs. 

Apple also has a variety of accessibility resources linked to iPad.
