Ordering Textbooks Fall 2021

August is fast approaching, and that means it’s time to start thinking about textbooks for Fall semester. Ordering online through the UD Bookstore remains the most convenient way to ensure you have the materials you need to start the school year on the right foot. This year, students who order online by August 7th 2021 will receive a special bonus!


The Bookstore will accept online textbook orders through Aug. 7, 2021. Students who order their textbooks before that date can receive a FREE school supply bundle, a coupon worth 20% off clothing and gift items at the Bookstore, and it all comes in a UD bag!  After selecting your textbooks add the ‘Supply Box’ to your cart and enter the coupon code SUPPLYBOX in order to receive the bundle for free. This promotion will remain available while supplies last. The bundle will include the following items:


1 University of Dayton binder

1 single-subject notebook

1 pack of notecards

1 package of mechanical pencils

1 package of highlighters in a University of Dayton holder


Ready to order but not sure how to do so? Don’t worry, ordering your textbooks online is simple and user friendly.

Step 1. Visit shop.udayton.edu and select “My Account” in the banner above the UD logo

Step 2. Log in to your UD account

Step 3. Click on the first course in your “My Courses” list at the top of the page

Step 4. Review the materials listed for your courses and select from your purchasing options

Step 5. Click “Add/Update Items in Cart” at the bottom of the page

Step 6. Complete the CAPTCHA and select the green “Checkout” button

Step 7. Fill in the required information and click “Review Order” To use your textbook scholarship, choose “Textbook Scholarship/Student Account” as your payment method and enter your student ID number in the next section. Available textbook scholarship funds will be applied to your transaction, and any charges not covered by those funds will be applied to your student account. Students must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours for textbook scholarship funds to be available.

Step 8. Review your order and information and click “Submit Order”


Congratulations! You just ordered your textbooks!


Immediately after you submit your order, you will receive an email to confirm that your order was placed.  When your order is ready, you will receive another email either confirming that your order has been shipped or that it is ready to be picked up at the Bookstore during regular operating hours. Students who do not order their textbooks online before August 7 should come to the Bookstore after they arrive on campus to pick out and purchase any physical materials. All E-Books can be ordered online at any time. Students ordering after August 7th will not receive the school supply bundle or Bookstore coupon.
