Apple Education Pricing

ISU Alumni, students, faculty, staff, and ISU Alumni Association members can save up to 13% with educational pricing and sales tax savings on Mac® and iPad® every day!

The Iowa State University Book Store is an Apple Authorized Campus Store. Since we're owned an operated by Iowa State University, there's no sales tax on any purchase you make, no matter what you are buying!

To purchase Apple computers or iPads at the ISU Book Store, you must be one of the following:

  • A current full-time ISU staff member (no contract, temporary, or consultants)
  • A current ISU faculty member
  • A current student enrolled in a course of study leading to a degree or certificate
  • A member of the Iowa State University Alumni Association
  • An incoming ISU student that has been accepted, submitted a deposit and has been assigned an ISU ID
  • An ISU alumnus - must have received a degree or certificate

All ISU Book Store purchases are tax free. With sales tax savings, normally 7% in Ames and surrounding areas, plus educational pricing on Mac & iPad, you can save up to 13% by shopping with us rather than at an Apple Store or other Apple retailers.
