Exciting Changes to Textbooks Coming July 1

The VandalStore is thrilled to announce the launch of OnCourse at the University of Idaho, our innovative solution to simplify your textbook shopping experience. Say goodbye to the hassle of traditional textbook shopping and hello to the ease and affordability of OnCourse.

Features & Benefits
  • Enhanced Delivery Options: Have your books delivered to your home, residence hall, or Greek house, or pick them up directly at the VandalStore.
  • Improved Ordering Website: Experience a smoother, more user-friendly process when ordering textbooks.
  • Streamlined Access: Books are available for pickup in-store and can be ordered online. Crucially, the bookstore will shift from holding physical inventory to a direct-delivery model, ensuring booksvare ready before the first day of classes.

Textbook Delivery Timeline
This fall, the VandalStore is implementing a refined delivery timeline to ensure efficient access to textbooks:
  • eBooks: All electronic books will be delivered within a 24-hour turnaround time from the moment of order.
  • Physical New and Rental Textbooks: Delivery for physical new and rental textbooks will be completed within 48-72 hours, depending on the order specifics and delivery location.
To guarantee that all materials are in your hands by the first day of classes, we encourage returning students to place their orders online by August 5, 2024. This helps ensure you are fully equipped to begin the academic year.

Supporting Educational & Sustainability Goals
At the U of I, we prioritize both educational support and sustainability. Here’s how our OnCourse system upholds these high-priority commitments:
  • Guaranteed Availability: Integrated with University of Idaho systems, OnCourse ensures that students have the necessary materials on the first day of classes, provided that the instructor has adopted the textbook. This seamless integration supports academic success by ensuring students are fully prepared from day one.
  • Sustainability Focus: By choosing digital formats, you contribute to reducing paper waste and supporting the university’s environmental goals.
