If you would like a different model than one of the 3 we're providing, you will need to buy from another source. 

The total price of a Bellarmine iPad can be found by adding the price of the iPad you want plus $99 insurance plus tax. The insurance fee buys three years of AppleCare + insurance coverage. This coverage allows you to replace a damaged iPad twice at a $50 deductible. Theft is not covered.

If you decide to order an iPad through the school, you will be billed on your school tuition statements. You can pay the entire price in one payment, or you can choose a 1-year or 2-year payment plan. Payment plans are interest free. You can place your order at the March registration, or by clicking on the "Purchase An iPad" tab above. You may also call Chelsey Rosario at 253-761-3543.

You will receive an email confirmation of your intent to purchase an iPad in April. The school will place their order with Apple in May. Families can pick up their iPad(s) from the Technology Support Center in the Admin Building from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m, Monday - Friday. The IT Department will email families when the iPads are ready for pick up. This is usually the end of June.

When you come to the new student registration in March, you will be greeted by the ICT Department in Orell Hall. We will ask you if you wish to buy an iPad through Bellarmine. There is no need to pay at this time. You will eventually see charges for this iPad on your monthly tuition statement. You can make this decision later if you wish. If you buy through Bellarmine, the IT Department will configure the iPad for you. Your son or daughter will need an iPad for the first day of school in August.

Lastly, we will be taking ID photos of all students registering at Bellarmine. ID photos will be used in our systems until October. In October, we will replace the March pictures with those taken by students on the August 23 picture day.
