Upgrading iPad (4th Gen) to iOS 9.0.2 without being forced to upgrade to 9.3

Is it possible to upgrade to 9.0.2 without being forced to upgrade to 9.3+?
I am still running a version of iOS 8 on it as i had no reason to upgrade any further at the time.
Now though, there are a couple of apps that require 9 or above that i want to use but am unable to as iTunes no longer verifies anything other than their latest official releases.
