Choose the book you want, new/used or rental if available and add to your cart.

On Step 2 select your shipping method via the drop down. The totals to the right will update to an estimate of what will be charged to your payment method in Step 3.

Hit 'Continue' to proceed to Step 3.

On Step 3 select your payment method from the 'Choose Payment Option' drop down. Please fill out the rest of the form below. The 'Your Order' to the right will display what will be charged to your payment method when the order is processed.

Please note: The dollar amount charged to your credit card or student account will be adjusted if a used book is no longer available and we fill your order with a new book.

Paying by Financial Aid?

Select Mayville State Financial Aid from the drop down menu.

Enter your 7 digit student ID account number along with your securing credit card information.

Note: You must provide a credit card number on your order even if you are charging to your student account. Your cart will show the estimated total of your order, but your securing credit card will be charged a $1.00 pre-authorization followed by a $1.00 credit. When your order is shipped, your credit card or approved student account will be charged the full amount.
