Free iPad2 rentals for GIs
Texas A&M University-San Antonio is providing a special perk to veterans taking advantage of the Post-9/11 GI Bill to go back to school: A new program gives service members, veterans, and their family members who are currently utilizing the Post-9/11 GI Bill the exciting opportunity to rent an iPad2 for their education at no cost.
As the university prepares to break ground this fall, the new free rental program is designed for new students in the military community who enroll in the fall 2012 semester to have use of an iPad2 for academic purposes.
Veterans and active duty service members comprise approximately 12 percent of the overall Texas A&M-San Antonio student body and many apply their Post-9/11 GI Bill educational benefits to earn degrees in fields such as business, computer science, and criminology.
To rent an iPad2 at no cost, students must meet the following eligibility requirements:
•Student must be utilizing the Post-9/11 GI Bill
•Student must be first-time student enrolling at A&M-San Antonio for fall 2012
•Cumulative undergraduate grade-point average of 2.5 or better; graduate grade-point average of 3.0 or better
•Full-time course load.
For further information on the program, contact Richard Delgado Jr. at 210- 784-1175 or Joy Hutchinson at 210-784-1177.
