Can my financial aid or VA benefits be applied to iLynn or graduate program deposits?
Meet with your financial aid counselor to determine eligibility.
When do I get my iPad?
If you choose a Lynn-issued iPad, you will receive it prior to the start of the term upon payment of your instructional materials fee. Please pay the instructional materials fee at least two weeks prior to the start of the term to allow for sufficient processing and shipping time. Lynn will ship iPads to U.S.-based students. If you prefer to pick up your iPad on campus, you may do so during the first week of each semester from 8 a.m.–6 p.m. on the second floor of the library. If you’re purchasing an iPad from another source, you are encouraged to do so at least two weeks prior to the start of the term.
How will the iPad be shipped to me, and who pays for the shipping?
Lynn will ship the devices domestically via FedEx. Lynn will pay for the shipping. If you reside outside of the U.S., you must provide your own device.
What if adult students aren't comfortable with iPad technology?
You're encouraged to take part in a zero-credit course on iTunes U that will explain the iPad learning ecosystem. In addition, you can access several resources online atwww.apple.com/support/ipad/ or contact IT Support Services in person (second floor of the library), by phone (+1 561-237-7979) during normal business hours, or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Will late applicants receive the iPad before classes start?
Lynn will expedite shipping for students who pay the instructional materials fee late. To receive your iPad in a timely manner, we encourage you to pay your fee at least two weeks prior to the start of the semester.
How are graduate programs delivered?
Most graduate degree programs are offered online, on campus or through a combination of both. All programs are delivered through our award-winning iPad program, which includes faculty-produced e-books and course materials delivered through iTunes U.
Will graduate students be upgraded to the iPad Pro?
No. The iPad mini continues to be the optimal—and most cost-efficient—learning companion for Lynn’s accelerated graduate programs.
I already own an iPad. Can I use it for my coursework?
Yes, you are welcome to use your own iPad device.
- Option 1: Pay $100 instructional materials fee to receive a Lynn-issued iPad mini 32 GB, LiveText, all required apps and a warranty for the duration of enrollment at Lynn. Upon completion of three graduate-level courses, the iPad is yours to keep. You may pay the instructional materials fee online at lynn.edu/emarket.
- Option 2: Use your own iPad and purchase LiveText and required apps ($140 estimated software cost). Your iPad will not be covered by Lynn's warranty or its loss and/or damage coverage. Technical support does not include iOS or hardware issues. You can purchase LiveText via the online bookstore or at livetext.com.
If you reside internationally: You must provide your own iPad (a 32GB iPad mini 2 or 32 GB iPad Air, running iOS 9 or better) and purchase LiveText and required apps. You can purchase LiveText via the online bookstore or at livetext.com.
How much does the iPad cost?
An iPad mini 2, Live Text license and access to pre-paid and faculty-recommended apps will be provided upon receipt of a $100 instructional materials fee. Submit payment at lynn.edu/emarket.
Who is responsible for loss or damage of the iPad?
You are responsible for the device, and you need it for your coursework. Lynn will determine on a case-by-case basis any fees to cover iPad damages or losses. Fees may be higher for multiple repairs on one device or multiple replacements for one student.
- For all repairs covered under the User Agreement, a repair fee of $50 will be charged. After the second repair, you will be charged the full repair cost of $400.
- Lost or stolen devices must be reported to Campus Safety and IT Support Services immediately. Three iPad mini replacements will be provided at $150 each. After the third replacement, you will be charged the full replacement cost.
What happens if I take a leave of absence or terminate the program early—do I have to return the iPad?
No, your Lynn-issued iPad is yours to keep as long as you've completed at least three Lynn courses. However, if you terminate your program early, you're responsible for letting IT Support Services know your decision so we can remove your device from our student list. This will ensure that you have no problems operating your iPad in the future.
