Please submit your textbook and course materials orders as early as possible. Doing so helps The Cornell Store have time to obtain more used books and offer lower prices, rental options, and ebook options for our students. While we do not enforce a deadline, we do request that you have your Spring 2018 book orders submitted to us by mid-November, unless that is impossible due to circumstances beyond your control.

We will accept custom course pack orders after mid-November, but cannot guarantee their availability by the first day of classes due to necessary processing and printing time.
