How and when can I order books for the fall 2021 semester?

How can I get my books and course materials shipped to my home?  

To guarantee enough time for the fulfillment and shipment of your order prior to the return to campus, please place your textbook order by August 7th. When placing an order online, students can choose "Textbook Ground Shipping" at the time of checkout. Books cannot be shipped to on-campus addresses. We will fill orders on a first-come, first-served basis; it may take 3-5 business days to ship an order. 

Can I come to the bookstore to pick up my books and course materials? 

Once an order is fulfilled, the student will receive an email notification the order is ready for pickup. If a student does not pre-order books online, in-store shopping for course materials will be available starting August 16th.  The Bookstore will offer extended hours throughout student move in and the first week of classes.

Can I sell back books?

See FAQs about the bookstore buyback program here.

Will we be able to rent books this year?

Rentals for the 2021-22 academic year will be limited to specific kits and equipment as required by the academic department. For cost saving alternatives on course materials, digital options are available for most required items.

Recognizing that travel can contribute to the University's teaching, learning, research and reputation efforts, new guidelines for travel during the pandemic will apply for the fall semester to help guide faculty, staff and students as they plan activities involving travel.

The UD integrated travel system for university travel, individual or group, can be found here. All travel should be approved in the system prior to making travel plans. Since travel is limited to essential only due to Covid 19 and budget restrictions, travelers are encouraged to contact with any questions. When normal travel resumes, trainings and additional information for campus will be made available.
