ONLINE ORDERING TIPS
Availability: Our website displays all materials adopted by an instructor. This does not reflect new/used inventory available at time of order. Some classes do not require any materials and will be noted as such. (If a class does not have anything listed, that means we did not receive an adoption from your instructor. Please contact them directly.)
Pricing: Prices are based on condition of the title (new/used) and if it's a rental or purchase. Prices are subject to change, but we do offer a Price Matching service.
Processing: eBooks are processed and charged automatically. You will not be charged for physical books until they are processed by a staff member. (This allows for substitutions.) If a title is placed on backorder, you will not be charged until it arrives.
Course Material Terms:
Access Code - A physical card containing a code/instructions for an eBook.
Direct Access - The class is participating in the DA program. Nothing to order from our site.
Either/Or - Only 1 option labeled "Either/Or" needs to be ordered.

NEW & USED PREFERENCES
Allowing Substitutions: During the ordering process, you will have selected NEW or USED for each title. At checkout, the prompt below will show to grant us permission to substitute if your chosen condition is not available. We HIGHLY recommend selecting YES to allow substitutions!
Cart Total with Substitutions:The cart will show the highest possible total for your order (i.e. all new books) -- your total after processing could be less if used books are available! The final amount charged to your card will show on your packing slip and pickup or shipping confirmation e-mail.
