Where to Find Textbooks and Textpaks

Required textbooks and textpaks are included in your course fees. Please do not purchase these separately. Your course fees covers your textbooks for enrolled courses only. If you drop a course you need to return all textbooks in mint condition or you will be charged for the replacement cost of the book. Instructions for returning textbooks for dropped classes are below.

Follow the instructions below to place your order. The GSM is not responsible for students who choose to purchase their course materials before receiving it from the bookstore. Students will not be reimbursed for such purchases, nor will we adjust fees if books were purchased separately.

Ordering Textbooks

Spring 2014 Bay Area Book Order form Information

All students will be allowed to order the required textbooks for your enrolled classes and have them shipped to your preferred address. Enrollment will be cross-referenced with the textbooks that you request. Students will only receive required textbooks for the courses they are enrolled in. Please allow 5 to 7 business days to receive your books from the time you submit your order form.

Returning Textbooks

If students order books for courses they later drop, it is the student’s responsibility to ship the textbook(s) back to the bookstore.

Textbooks should be returned no later than the 2nd week of classes and in the condition they were received. Students who fail to return their textbooks in a timely manner or return damaged textbooks will have their student account placed on hold and may not be able to register for courses, have grades released, etc.

To return your textbooks, send them to:

UCDMC Bookstore
Attn: Bay Area GSM Textbook Return
2270 Stockton Blvd.
Sacramento, CA 95817

For more information on textbook availability, call 530-752-6846 or email: bookstore@ucdavis.edu.

Textpak Information

Textpaks may be obtained through the Study.net website and may be downloaded in electronic form one month prior to the first day of classes. Students must be enrolled in the course to access textpaks.

Once logged into the Study.net site, students may choose to view textpaks online, print textpaks themselves or order a hard copy that will be sent directly to the student via First Class Mail. If a student decides to order a printed textpak, it will be shipped immediately and will be received within 3-4 days of the order date.

The advantage of using Study.net over traditional textpak providers is the convenience of instantaneous access to course readings online and it provides students with the choice to purchase copyright access and print materials themselves, or purchase a hard copy that will be compiled by Study.net.

Once enrolled, students will need to set up a user name and login password to purchase their specific textpak. Once logged in, students may search for their course and then begin viewing the pak online. It is that easy!
