Apple on Campus program no longer available in Belgium, Switzerland

updated 01:33 pm EDT, Wed August 27, 2014

Online store discounts 'still valid'

The Apple on Campus program -- which lets students buy discounted Macs and accessories through their school -- has been halted in Belgium and Switzerland, according to Apple officials. "Yes, Apple on Campus was stopped. However, the Apple Education Store discounts are obviously still valid," says a spokesperson for Apple Switzerland. Those prices are not as cheap as those that were available through Apple on Campus, however. One exception to the discontinuations is a program in Switzerland known as Neptune.

The change is unexplained, and an unusual step backwards for Apple, which has normally been invested in expanding educational discounts. Belgium and Switzerland are, for example, two of the countries Apple brought its Volume Purchase Program to this summer.

    My guess is someone in each of those countries got greedy and demanded services and price discounts far in excess of what Apple was willing to work with.
