At Wilmington University, online students and face to face students who take the same course will generally have the same resource requirements. But if you’re a student in Florida, do you shop at the Wilmington University Campus store – online?
Carmen Casanova, Campus Store manager, says that over 25% of the Campus Store sales are online – but very frequently, online sales are to local students. “No matter where the students are located, we’re here to assist students, getting their books to them on time,” she said. “We ship around the corner, and overseas.”
If you’re an online student receiving financial aid, using that credit at the Campus Store after tuition obligations are met is probably the easiest way to use the remainder of your award.
Online textbook retailers such as Chegg, Amazon and Ecampus make comparison shopping very simple, but Casanova recommends caution. “Be careful that you are ordering the exact edition you need, with all software or online keys intact.”
Third party purchases are often not guaranteed or returnable, so if you find that the textbook you’ve ordered is missing a dvd, you may be out of luck. Using the Campus Store for your textbook purchases means you are guaranteed to have the correct materials for your class.
