Bruin Books Ordering
Fall 2020, July 10-26
We are seeing an alarming number of Bruin Books orders being shipped to Belmont. You MUST enter YOUR home delivery address for your order. If you ship to Belmont and we have to change our back to school plans due to COVID-19, this could delay the receipt of your books in a timely manner!
The Bruin Books portal will open for students to purchase books for Fall 2020 courses on July 10, 2020 and will remain open through July 26, 2020. Due to COVID-19, we have made some changes to the Bruin Books process for the Fall 2020:
- There is not an “auto-fulfillment” option for Fall 2020.If you do not log in to the Bruin Books portal and place an order you will NOT automatically have your books ordered for you.
- If you do wish to purchase books through the Bruin Books portal, then you must log in to the portal and place an order.Again, there is NOT an “auto-fulfillment” option this year.
- If you do place an order through Bruin Books, you MUST enter a delivery address for your order.We strongly encourage you to have your book purchase sent to your home/billing address.
- Books will be shipped on July 28th.
The Bruin Books portal will be available from July 10, 2020 through July 26, 2020. Once your order has been placed, you will be prompted to enter your delivery address. Please have all of your materials sent to your home address whether you are opting for on-line or in classroom learning, this will help us avoid crowds and maintain required social distancing at campus pick up locations. For full instructions and additional information, please visit: thebelmontstore.com/bruinbooks.
We hope that you and your family are safe and looking forward to returning to campus this fall. Please know that, at Belmont, we are making every effort to ensure your safety and well-being once you arrive on campus.
Thank you for using Bruin Books and stay well!
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.
How It Works
1. YOU HAVE CHOICE!
Once you opt into the program, a ‘No Thanks’ option gives you the ability to remove books from your cart.
2. YOU WILL KNOW WHEN YOUR ORDER ARRIVES
We will check in packages at the Gabhart location. You will then 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
Bruin Books and the 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
Communications will come to your pop account. Be sure to check it often for order updates and information.
6. OPT-OUT OPTION MOVED
The link to ‘Opt-Out’ is located at the top of the portal’s home page. This link will send you to a stand-alone site that will capture the ‘opt-out’ and eliminate the confusion of accidentally opting 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, anyone who didn’t opt-out will be auto-enrolled. The portal will reopen on a later date so that you can order the materials for ‘added’ classes. ‘Added’ courses will appear in the portal within 30 minutes of registration. You will be prompted to select New, Used, Rental, e-Book or No Thanks. This feature not only allows you to see the costs of your texts, but it also lets you have your course materials shipped to an address convenient to you.
