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.


How do I Pay for my device? - iPad Purchase Form Download

In order to pay for your iPad, you will need to mail a check with the depreciated value and the iPad Purchase Form to the address below:

Diana Gold

122 Hardymon Building

301 Rose Street, Lexington, KY 40508


NOTE: Make the check payable to the University of Kentucky. It is very important to include the iPad Purchase Form in order for us to process your iPad, if you provide just a check it will take longer to identify who the check belongs to. 


What is the depreciated value of my device?

The month you pick up your device, technology begins depreciating in value. The depreciated value is calculated based on when you withdraw from the university. Once the value is calculated it will not decrease unless it is paid, or the device is returned.
