Purchase at Depreciated Value
If you withdraw or transfer from the University of Kentucky you have the option to purchase the iPad and all related accessories at its depreciated value to keep ownership.
After purchasing your device, we will remove the mobile device management system and you can continue to use your iPad as you would with any other of your personal devices.
It can take up to two weeks after payment for management to be removed from your device. Management cannot be removed from your device until we receive the check and process your payment. A customer support ticket will be opened on your behalf so you will be notified throughout the entire process.
*Please note that if you attempt to reset your device before it is removed from management, you may get locked out of your device until we complete the removal process.
