Northland College partners with online bookstore provider, Akademos Textbookx.com to provide student textbooks. Northland offers a virtual bookstore and marketplace that delivers course material to students at a reasonable price and in a timely manner. All course materials are organized by instructor and course name. Northland students can search by course or instructor name to be sure you order exactly what you need for each course.
When shopping on the marketplace, students save an average of 60 percent off list price, which is comparable to prices on Amazon. Free shipping is also applied to most retail orders over $49. You also ensure that you are ordering the correct book for the specific course. Akademos Textbookx.com offers rental and buyback programs in addition to books at low costs. Look for more information on buyback toward the end of the semester.
Students who have a credit balance on their Northland account can request up to $500 of that credit to be applied to northland/textbookx.com (only) as a book voucher by emailing a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
