iPad Management

A student's iPad at Northeast is remotely managed through our Mobile Device Management system.  Managing a student's iPad allows Northeast to centrally deploy required apps free of charge, reassign licenses for workflow, send instant messages, secure sensitive data, and remotely lock/wipe devices in the case of a lost/stolen device.  The management system places no restrictions on your iPad, and it does not affect any iPad capabilities.

Upon receiving a Northeast iPad, the device will be automatically enrolled in our remote management system. Personal devices purchased outside of Northeast are not automatically enrolled in the management system, and therefore, are not managed by Northeast.  Additional steps are required for Northeast to deploy applications to personal devices.  See the Northeast Student Help Desk for more information. 

iPad Release Upon Graduation or Transfer

Upon graduation or transfer, you may request for the NEMCC remote management to be removed.  Please complete the form below to make the request.  You will be notified when the management piece has been removed, then you will restore your iPad to its original settings.

Remote Management Removal

  1. Open Settings
  2. Select General
  3. Scroll to the bottom and select Reset
  4. Select Erase All Content and Settings
  5. Your iPad will now begin restoring to its original settings.  This may take several minutes.  Follow the on-screen steps to set up your iPad.

iPad Repairs/Rentals

As owners of the iPad, students are responsible for all repairs if the device becomes damaged.  We recommend purchasing Apple Care+ within 60 days of receiving the iPad as insurance to cover repair costs. The certified Apple Repair locations in close proximity to Northeast Community College are Best Buy and Exceed Technologies in Tupelo, MS. Learn more about Apple Care+

If the device is not operable for a short amount of time during repair, a replacement can be rented from the Technology Help Desk located in the Haney Union.  Rentals are also available for dual enrolled students and part-time students taking a transfer class at Northeast during the summer months.  To rent an iPad, students should reach out to the Northeast Technology Help Desk to make a request.  

  • 2 weeks rental = $25
  • 4 weeks rental = $50
  • 16 weeks semester rental (dual enrolled students only) = $200

Additional Fees due to damage or accessories that haven't been returned:

  • iPad Damage = $50
  • Lost Charging Block = $20
  • Lost Charging Cable = $20
  • If a rented iPad and accessories are not returned, the cost of the device will be added to the students account.  This charge is $320
