I was wondering, if I purchased Apple Care as a student can I transfer it to someone else when I sell the device(s)? I've found a similar question on here but it didn't address specifically Apple Care purchased as a student.

Also if it is possible, how do you do this?


Yes, you can transfer AppleCare to another person subject the terms and conditions in the location you live. Whether this is a student-purchase or not doesn't make a difference.

You didn't mention the country you live so I'll assume you're in the US for this info. (you'll need to look-up the T&C's for your own country if not in the US).

Here's a snippet from Apple's AppleCare T&C for a Mac. It tells you how to transfer the AppleCare to someone else.:

10. Transfer of Plan.

Subject to the restrictions set forth below, you may make a one-time permanent transfer of all of your rights under the Plan to another party, provided that: (a) you transfer to the other party the original proof of purchase, the Plan's Confirmation, the Plan’s printed materials and this service contract; (b) you notify Apple of the transfer by sending, faxing or e-mailing notice of transfer to Apple Inc., ATTN: Agreement Administration, MS: 217-AC, 2511 Laguna Blvd, Elk Grove, CA 95758, U.S., fax number 916-405-4175 or agmts_transfer@apple.com, respectively, and (c) the other party accepts the terms of this service contract. When notifying Apple of the transfer, you must provide the Plan Agreement Number, the serial number of the Covered Equipment, and the name, address, telephone number and email address of the new owner.

Make sure you follow a, b, and c to correctly perform the transfer. Keep a record of what you send to Apple and how they respond back to you.

  • Wow! I didn't expect Apple would have let you do this. Nice find! Very helpful to know.
