Bruin Books Ordering/Opt Out Service Set for
November 27- December 10

Bruin Books is the textbook ordering system from Belmont University and MBS Direct designed to offer students an easy, seamless, price-competitive and direct-ship service for your textbook needs.
Improvements for Spring 2018
1. YOU HAVE CHOICE!

A ‘No Thanks’ option will be added to the portal. Once you opt into the program, you have the ability to remove books from your cart. This will allow you to delete books you do not need from your order.

2. YOU WILL KNOW WHEN YOUR ORDER ARRIVES

UPS will ‘check—in’ packages at the Gabhart location so that you receive an email letting you know your package has arrived and is ready for pick-up.

3. ALL-IN-ONE LOCATION- GABHART STUDENT CENTER

The Belmont Store textbook staff will relocate their offices temporarily to Gabhart during pick-up so that you have one location to get your packages, ask questions and bring books you need shipped back for credit.

4. 14 DAY AUTO RETURN ON PACKAGES

UPS Store will implement a 14 day return policy. When a package is not picked up within 14 days of arriving, it will be returned at no expense to you. This policy applies to the Bruin Book program only (not other packages received on campus). It will speed up the process of receiving credit for books that you don’t want.

5. CLEAR COMMUNICATION

We will improve our communication efforts by sending emails from a clear sender (such as Belmont UPS Store or Bruin Books, rather than Luxor One), sending a letter home detailing the changes to the program and emailing students a pre-established ‘hours of operation’ for the Gabhart pick-up location.

6. OPT-OUT OPTION MOVED

The ‘Opt-Out’ location will be moved from the left hand side of the portal to the top of the portal. This will send you to a stand-alone site that will capture the ‘opt-out’ and eliminate the confusion of accidentally opting yourself back in when you view your course materials. After you opt-out, you can go back to the Bruin Books site and view your required materials as many times as you wish.

7. DROP/ADD and LATE REGISTRATION MADE EASIER

After the portal closes on December 10, anyone who didn’t opt-out will be auto-enrolled. Beginning December 11 the portal will open back up for you to order books for added classes. The added class will appear in the portal within 30 minutes of registering for their new class, and you can select ‘new, used, rental, e-book or no thanks’. This will allow you to see the costs of your books, as well as ship to an address convenient to you. You can expedite shipping if you choose.
