Apple Computer Product Sale - Purchase Guidelines

As of December 1, 2014, SOU is no longer an Official Apple Store outlet.  We will continue to sell remaining inventories but as a result of the change in our official status with APPLE, there is no guarantee of any warranties being extended by Apple for products purchased from SOU as of December 1, 2014.This does not mean there is not a potential warranty still in place on your purchase, but there is no guarantee of warranty for the item you may wish to purchase.  If you do purchase an item 12/1/2014 on, you can use the warranty look-up tool on the website to determine how much of the orignial warranty remains (at the time you register the item with Apple). 

Given this inconvenience, SOU will be extending an additional discount on purchase of the remaining Apple inventory. 

Forms Library

The Business Services Forms Library gives you a centralized location to access all the forms you need related to our department's major functional areas (Travel, Purchasing, Accounting, Payroll, etc.). Forms are indexed as much as possible by functional area. New and revised forms will be posted here as they become available.

If you need to find out more about an area or procedure, clicking the "Home" link under the appropriate heading will take you to that section's webpage. Each area's web page will contain an overview, contact information, and procedural information or links to related policies and procedures.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Business Services.
