Barnes and Noble College Marketplace Offers New Purchase Options
You’ve probably heard by now about our exciting transition to Barnes and Noble College (BNC). In our last communication, we shared information with you about the BNC customer service team, the financial savings this new partnership will bring to our students, and the freedom to take control of purchasing your course materials.
Today we’d like to share with you the wealth of purchase options that BNC will bring to our students. You can truly customize your textbook purchases to get the course materials you need in the format that works for you.
Course Material Options
BNC offers more options for course materials in several formats. The following options are available for many of our courses:
- Buy New or Used Print Books
- Rent New or Used Print Books
- Buy or Rent Digital and Ebooks
Barnes and Noble Marketplace
In addition to books sourced directly from BNC, you will gain access to the vast online Marketplace with hundreds of authorized sellers. On the Marketplace you can:
- Search hundreds of sellers vetted by BNC for accuracy and reliability
- Find significant savings on your books and other materials
- Multiple options from new, like new, used condition, and more
The Marketplace and the many purchasing options available to our students are just a few of the many new features we’re excited about thanks to our new partnership with BNC.
As a reminder, CAGS students will begin using BNC for classes starting in March. There will be no change to your February classes!
Please continue to watch for future updates via www.macu.edu, Desire2Learn, and your student email.
