Students enrolled in eight (8) or fewer credits in a semester are eligible to rent an iPad through the NJC Bookstore. Students enrolled in nine (9) credits or more will be required to bring their own iPad or iPad Mini. The college decided in May 2015 to allow returning full-time students, who will graduate within the next year (Fall 2015 or Spring 2016), to participate in the college’s iPad rental program. This will most likely be a one-year program designed for those students who will not be able to take advantage of two years’ worth of iPad usage at NJC. The rental rate for an iPad Air II will be $180/semester.  Students who rent should read the rental and usage agreement carefully and be familiar with the requirements of renting an iPad.

Program Details

Eligible students will be able to rent an iPad Bundle that includes:

  • 64gb iPad Air II
  • Protective Cover
  • AppleCare+ Coverage

Cost: $180.00 per semester

For more details please see the Student iPad Rental and Usage Agreement.
