IT leadership at each of the schools has identified specs and operating systems that best meet the minimum requirements for students in their programs. While an iPad is a very useful device in many situations, it has not been identified by school IT leaders as adequate for the primary computing needs of students in their programs. The financial assistance offered by the university is designed to meet those primary computing needs as identified by the schools.
Graduate, professional and University College students in need of funding for technology support needs may direct requests to their School or Department financial aid representative for consideration.
Please visit the Student Financial Services website for more information on technology funding support and the tech grant. (https://financialaid.wustl.edu/how-aid-works/affordability/)
