Purchasing Apple Applications for a University-owned device using iTunes
If you are purchasing applications for University-owned iPads, you may use either of the options listed below. If you are purchasing applications for a desktop or laptop computer, please use option 2 below and then fill out the P-Card Software Registration Form. Apps are attached to an iTunes account. It is recommended that you create an iTunes account for your department that is separate from your personal account. You can attach more than one iTunes account to a device.
Log in to the Software Ordering System. In the search box type "iPad" without the quotes. A list of applications will be presented. Add the desired apps to your cart and checkout. A requisition will be created which will need to be approved. Once the order is processed, an e-mail will be sent to the requestor with the applicable redemption codes. If the app you want is not listed, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting that the app be added. Once the app is added, you will receive an e-mail indicating that you can now request the app on the Software Ordering System.
Buy the application with your P-Card. You will need to attach your P-Card to an iTunes account. You will be charged tax, and you will need to work with Apple to get the tax refunded. The refund will be issued in the form of a paper check. This can be accomplished by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. Include in the e-mail the following information.
Name of Exempt Organization: (This will be the payee of the check)

Amount of Sales Tax to be Refunded: (If you are submitting multiple invoices, please provide the total sales tax charged on all of them)
