Online and graduate students keep their iPads.
Can I install Lynn apps on another device that I own?
Yes, you can access Lynn-provided apps on any Apple device. Log in using the same Apple ID that you use with your coursework.
What is included on the iPad?
Your iPad will come with instructions that help you configure it for use with Lynn's classroom environment, security, Wi-Fi (if applicable) and email. This includes an app called "Mobile Iron" that provides access to other pre-paid or faculty-recommended apps.
Will I need to purchase textbooks?
Many of our courses have faculty-produced e-books, which provide significant cost savings. If your course requires you to purchase a textbook, this will be indicated when you log into the online bookstore to purchase course materials.
Will the iPad have a data plan?
No. iPads are Wi-Fi enabled, so no data plan is required. Lynn has a state-of-the-art wired and wireless network that ensures you will have a reliable and fast connection anywhere on campus. Students studying off campus must have access to a wireless Internet connection.
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.
