Books: Ordering and Shipping
Used Book Discount Policy
If you paid in full with a check, you will receive a check for the used book discount. If you paid the minimum due with a check and are making monthly payments, the credit for the used book discount will be applied to your first monthly payment. If you paid with a credit card, whether in full or the minimum due, the used book discount will be given before the charge is made to your credit card. If used books are supplied, the shipping/handling fee remains the same as for new books.
What You Should Know About Ordering Course Materials
GU uses textbooks and supplementary educational materials produced by academic publishing companies. You are NOT required to purchase textbooks from GU; however, if you purchase textbooks from other sources, you must obtain the exact versions/editions required for the course. Because of course revisions, titles of textbooks and supplies are subject to change. Only materials listed in FORM 2 can be ordered through the GU bookstore. All supplies listed for each course, except those marked optional, are necessary to complete the course. You cannot complete a course without an Instructional Guide, since it contains all the assignments and lesson helps. Please secure all your materials at the time of enrollment. GU cannot guarantee availability after the initial enrollment.
Textbooks and supplies are handled on a cash basis only (no C.O.D. shipments) and must be paid before shipment.
Advertised prices for books and supplies are subject to change without notice if publishers increase their prices.
