Technology and iPad Information

iPad, Charger & Case:

All incoming freshmen and transfer students will receive an iPad to manage coursework.  Glenbard will ship your iPad and training information to your residence after you have registered (including health forms and immunizations), paid your fees, and/or signed up for a payment plan. We strongly encourage families to register as early as possible so that your student has more time to train on their device prior to the first day of school. iPad training is in Schoology, and the paper that comes with the iPad will explain what to do to be prepared for the first day of school.

Returning students who have a school-issued iPad are responsible for maintaining their device in good working order and will use their device for the upcoming school year.  Returning students should run all software and app updates prior to the first day of school.  

If you experience technical issues with your iPad contact the technical support help desk at 630-942-7777 or use the online support form.         


Digital Curriculum/Applications

Glenbard provides students with digital curriculum (digital textbooks, digital novels, digital workbooks) and applications (Schoology, our learning management system; etc.) that the student will use for their coursework.  

Note: Certain courses may still require non-digital materials (hardbound textbooks; paperback novels or workbooks).  If your student needs these non-digital materials, we will provide them at no additional charge.  Textbooks must be returned by the student in good condition at semester end (semester classes) or by year-end for (full term classes), or fines could apply. These materials will be provided to your student once school is in session.
