UMD students and parents have many questions about textbook reservations at UMD. We hope this list will help answer those questions. If you have additional questions you can contact UMD Stores by emailing [email protected] or by calling (218) 726-8708.
Not all courses have used books available. Textbook reservation orders are processed 1-2 weeks before the beginning of the semester, in the order in which they are received. We cannot guarantee that we will have used textbooks available when we process your order. The price shown is the maximum amount you would pay. You will not be charged until we process your order.
You may use your UCard to pay for textbook reservations to be picked up at UMD. Textbook reservations are available for fall and spring semesters. UCards can NOT be used as payment for textbook orders being shipped.
You can check on your order status online. Simply log in with your UMD Stores website user name and password, and choose the "track orders" option. Please note that textbook reservation orders are not filled and packed 1-2 weeks before classes start, so you will not see changes to your order until then. Please call us at (218) 726-8708 for additional assistance.
We pack all available textbooks at the time we ship. Occasionally, a book has not been received or is unavailable until the semester starts. You can make another reservation for pickup, or stop in to UMD Stores to purchase the book.
Some courses now provide digital materials directly to the students on the first day of class. If you have one of these classes, your instructor will notify you and will provide you with the access information. The access fee for these materials will be charged directly to your student tuition account - not your credit card - after the add/drop day set by campus. Direct digital materials and prices are displayed on our website for your information; you will not be able to add them to your shopping cart. For more information about these materials, visit our Direct Digital Access page.
