As you've heard, we are making some changes to our book processes here at Norwich which will enhance your student experience and help keep your academic costs under control.
The list is updated 30 days prior to the start of each course. Please view the list on a laptop or desktop for best viewing experience.
We've put together a list of questions and answers to help you navigate our new textbook and course material process using the Online Programs Bookstore.
There are two ways to know which books you need. Approximately 30 days prior to the start of classes:
By default, every item in your shopping cart will have a check box and the word “accept” to the left of the title. The checked item indicates that when you complete your order, Norwich will send you those books. (Opt In) Costs for books that you order will be posted to your Norwich bill.
Unchecking the box indicates that you will acquire that book on your own. (Opt Out)
Yes. The option to opt-in and opt-out can be selected at the book, eBook, or course material level.
If you opted out, then decide you do want to get the course materials through the Online Programs Bookstore, you will need to notify your Norwich advisor. He/she will request that your shopping cart be reloaded. NOTE: You must do this prior to the first day of class. Course materials must be acquired by the first day of class.
Norwich has worked with vendors to obtain the best possible pricing for your eBook. Length of access information will be available when you access your shopping cart.
When purchasing an eBook you will choose one of the following access options:
NOTE: If your program has a comprehensive exam or capstone, you should ensure that you have appropriate length of access to content you may need.
An email will be sent to your NU Email account when your shopping cart is available (expect email approximately 3 weeks before class begins).
This cart will be accessible until 12:00 p.m. ET Friday of week 1 of classes.
You will receive a shipping confirmation email when your books have shipped. For additional information, you may check your order status from the home page of the Online Programs Bookstore.
Once you have opted-in to each of your course materials and finalized the process through the shopping cart, you will receive details about accessing digital titles you have selected.
Your Norwich advisor can help answer additional questions about course textbooks and materials, course registration, and how-to opt-in and opt-out of using the Online Programs Bookstore.
