NYU Shanghai students are expected to purchase required course materials for all enrolled classes by the end of the second week add/drop deadline. Required textbook information will be announced to all students through NYU Shanghai Textbooks Website one month before the semester starts. Please follow the instructions below carefully:
-Make sure to check the NYU Shanghai Textbooks Website for the detailed information of required textbooks as well as the format of each textbook for your enrolled course(s) that NYU Shanghai can provide.
-If the format of a textbook shows on the NYU Shanghai Textbooks Website is a physical version, you can only order through NYU Shanghai Textbooks Website. No verification will be allowed.
-If the format of textbook shows on NYU Shanghai Textbooks Website is an electronic version, you have two options:
1) Order the e-textbook from NYU Shanghai Textbooks Website. Students may not replace NYU Shanghai e-textbooks with e-versions purchased outside of NYU Shanghai’s textbook process. E-textbooks can be only purchased through NYU Shanghai.
2) Or you can purchase a physical copy from a legal resource with the exact same ISBN number listed on NYU Shanghai Textbooks Website by yourself and verify your copy with the textbook team during the textbook distribution sessions.
Students can ONLY verify a self-purchased physical copy when a required textbook is available in electronic version on NYU Shanghai Textbooks Website. Please make sure you follow the verification guideline here.
The detailed dates, times, and locations of textbook distribution sessions will be announced to all students through email before the semester starts.
