New full-time traditional undergraduate Maryville students are included in our Digital World iPad 1:1 program. Eligible students receive their iPad when they check in on their scheduled START date. Students who cannot attend START in person will have their iPad and accessories shipped to the address they used to register.

Incoming students receive an iPad 10th Generation with charging brick and cable and an Apple Pencil 1st Generation and USB-C adaptor to connect the iPad and Apple Pencil.

Note: Weekend and evening nursing students and students in select graduate programs are also eligible for an iPad and will have their iPads shipped before the start of classes. iPads are only distributed to on-campus students and are not currently available for fully online students.

Before Your iPad Arrives

Before receiving and setting up your iPad, you’ll need to know the following information:

  1. Maryville Username/Password
  2. Visit https://community.maryville.edu/s/article/Password-Reset for instructions on how to reset your Maryville email or mylogin.maryville.edu to set up your Maryville email (if you haven’t done so already).

  3. Apple ID Username/Password
  4. Students must have a US-based Apple ID. You can use your personal Apple ID for your Digital World iPad or create a new one using your Maryville email address. If you don’t know the password for your Apple ID or need to set up a new one, visit appleid.apple.com.

    Note: If your current Apple ID is connected to a family plan (e.g., your parents might approve app installs and purchases), you must create a new personal Apple ID.

    Once your Maryville account and Apple ID are active, you are ready to set up your iPad.

How to Set Up Your iPad

Once your iPad arrives, you’ll need to power it on and go through a few set-up steps. The video below outlines these steps.

    Currently, digital World iPads are distributed to all traditional full-time on-ground undergraduate students, as well as weekend and evening nursing students and graduate students in the Occupational Therapy, Rehabilitation Counseling, and Speech Language Pathology programs.

  • What happens to my iPad when I graduate?

    After you graduate, your Maryville iPad will be released from our management system and become yours to keep. All Maryville-issued apps will be removed, and you can reset the iPad as a new device for your personal use.

  • What happens if I withdraw or transfer before I graduate?

    If you withdraw or transfer before graduating, you are required to return your iPad and accessories to the Maryville University DLX Service Desk, located on the 2nd floor of the library – Suite 200.

  • How to get support?

    You will never have to go to the Apple Store for support for your Digital World iPad. Maryville offers 24–hour online support at https://techsupport.maryville.edu. For on-campus support, you can visit MiTech Bar, our Apple Support space located in the Maryville MStore, or go to the DLX Service Desk on the 2nd floor of the Maryville Library.

  • What happens if I break my iPad?

    If you have a damaged iPad, you can visit the DLX Service Desk on the 2nd floor of the library – Suite 200, or MiTech Bar in the MStore to receive a replacement device. You will be required to fill out the appropriate forms, and a $50 charge will be applied to your student account for each damaged device. Maryville will not replace broken chargers or Apple Pencils.

    If your iPad is stolen, you must file a police report for the missing items. Students then bring the police report to the DLX Service Desk or the MiTech Bar to receive a replacement device at no cost. If you cannot obtain a police report, you will be responsible for the device’s total cost to receive a replacement, as the iPad would be considered lost, not stolen.
