As the next semester quickly approaches, so does the need to buy your next set of textbooks! In partnership with Barnes & Noble College and MBS Direct, U-M provides an online bookstore process that is easier than ever. Let us break it down for you:
Direct Ordering- Make your purchase either online at http://umichtextbook.com or directly from your schedule in Wolverine Access. This new system customizes your order to your class schedule and ensures you’re getting the right course materials right away.
eBooks and Hard Copies- Whether you prefer to read off your laptop screen or with the book in your lap, we’ve got you covered, as both options are available for purchase.
Price Match- No need to worry about overpaying. If you find a textbook listed for a lower price on Amazon or Barnes & Noble’s website, we’ll match it! If you prefer to rent your books or buy used, both options are offered as well.
Guaranteed Buyback- Let’s be honest, are you going to need that Underwater Basket Weaving 342 textbook ever again? Probably not. With guaranteed buyback you’ll know exactly how much money you can return a textbook for at the end of the semester, no FaceBook marketplace, no eBay, it’s already done for you!
Shipping- Have your books sent to one of our convenient shipping locations in Pierpont Commons or Shapiro Library for no additional cost. Pick-up hours are super flexible and occur throughout August and September.
Flexibility- Books are covered by a streamlined return policy even if you change classes before the add/drop deadline!
Now that you know all the awesome benefits the online bookstore has to offer, what are you waiting for? Buying early will ensure you’ll be ready to go come September. No worrying about late arrivals or unprepared classes means more time to enjoy your studies and start your semester off strong!
