iPad Requirement

Apple iPad Mini


The college requires DNP students to purchase an iPad with 128GB of storage.

With the iPad, students receive:

  • Nearly $100 worth of interactive apps
  • The option to purchase or lease e-textbooks (a less expensive alternative to hard copies of textbooks)
  • Set-up instructions and iPad training during student orientation
  • Tech support from our in-house Center for Academic Technologies and Educational Resources (CATER) Helpdesk

Note: Like textbooks, the iPad qualifies for financial aid funding.
