Beyond the cost of tuition, students need to ensure they have a reliable laptop that will get them through school and won't leave them running for an outlet to recharge. As part of our non-profit mission to make education accessible and affordable for all, students have access to a MacBook to use during their program at no cost when they purchase AppleCare+ protection for their device. We even provide a Microsoft 365 subscription with your Mac giving you access to all the software you need for college including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote, and many more.
It's simple. If you need a laptop for school, we lend you one to use until your time in the program ends when you purchase AppleCare+ For Education coverage to protect the device. Students enrolling in the program sign a loaner agreement and return the laptop when they leave the program. We even provide a Mac OS Boot Camp for anyone who needs some training or isn't the most computer savvy.
