Paper Version (Print book and Print buddle) has a longer delivery period.

Generally, books will arrive 2 to 3 months after the end of the textbook ordering period. Since most of the print books are shipping from overseas, coupled with other reasons such as the epidemic and freight problems, the arrival time may be longer than the original 2 to 3 months.

E-Version (E-books, E-bundles) have a short delivery period, and will arrive 1 to 2 weeks after the textbook order period ends.

Q6. After ordering textbooks, why I receive a bill to make up the difference?

Due to the temporary replacement of textbooks by the college or the update of prices by the publisher, the actual price of the textbooks does not match the amount paid by the students. The difference will be billed in WeMust. Students pay the supplementary payment for the difference on time.

Q7. If I forget to order textbooks, what should I do?

After the textbook ordering period ends, we will have 1 to 2 supplementary orders according to the situation. In order to enable students who miss to order during the textbook order period to get textbooks in a short period of time, the supplementary orders are generally mainly electronic textbooks, or small amount of print books.

Under normal circumstances, 20% of the textbook fee will be charged for the re-ordering after the start of the semester as the urgent fee for the publishers and the administrative fee for the university.

No! Ordered textbooks cannot be cancelled or refund for any reasons. The textbook service of the library order textbooks from the publishers or booksellers on behalf of the students. Due to the restrictions and policies of publishers, return and replace are not be accepted. Students have to consider carefully when ordering.

In this case, the textbook fees will be returned to the student's WeMust wallet after the book collection activity ends.
