Missouri State University works with vendors to provide discounts on Dell and Apple computers. These discounts apply to any student, faculty, or staff member purchasing a computer for personal use.
Missouri State has partnered with Dell to provide computers at a year-round discount price to students, faculty and staff. See the Dell Student/Employee Site for current pricing (please be sure to read the “Helpful Hints” section below). This discount is promoted during Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR). Use one of these methods to select and purchase your computer:
Online orders can be placed at the Dell Student/Employee Site.
Please note that computers listed in the “Recommended Bundles” do not come with the Microsoft Office Productivity suite. It is offered as an option on computers in the “Full Catalog”. A license/disk combo for this suite is available at the Missouri State Bookstore at a discounted price that is much less than the computer configuration option. The Missouri State Bookstore can help you with your Dell purchases on the Dell Student/Employee Site to order your computer online and help you with options.
Please call (888) 987-3355 for phone orders. Be sure to mention Member ID: BS21381544. Students and employees can also purchase the Campus Standard computer models.
Helpful Hints for Online Shopping
- The total discount is not displayed until your purchase is added to the cart.
- Pay careful attention to the default warranty: 3-yr. Next Business Day is usually sufficient for most people. The default usually adds training and sometimes an extra year. If you don’t want this, there is no need to pay for it.
- Be patient. Dell runs many weekly specials such as free shipping or double memory. Sometimes they run a free monitor upgrade. Waiting an extra week can be profitable for you.
- Microsoft Office is not a default option for our Dell or iMac computers. A license/disk combo is available at the Missouri State Bookstore at a heavily-discounted price.
The Missouri State Bookstore is an authorized Apple Education Reseller that sells Apple computers at a discount price to students, faculty, and staff. Visit the Missouri State Bookstore for more details.
