Most orders will ship within 1 business day. There are various shipping options available including USPS economy shipping (free on retail books totaling over $49), UPS Ground, UPS 2nd Day and UPS Next Day.  At the beginning of each semester a special shipping option, Campus Pickup, will be available to students, so you can conveniently pickup your book order at the MCNY campus.  Details and dates will be listed prior to the start of the semester.

The bookstore accepts all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) and school issued book vouchers.  If you don't have a credit card, or would prefer not to use one, you can set up an account with the MCNY Bursar's Office (see below) to receive a book voucher.

Book Advance Authorization

MCNY's Online Bookstore, powered by Akademos, allows you to purchase high-quality, low-cost textbooks for your courses. Students will be given a credit line of $100, $200, or $250, depending upon the amount of their estimated refund. If you do not use the line of credit, you will not be charged. If your total purchase is in excess of your credit line, you will have to pay the difference. If the purchase is less, the charge to your MCNY account will only reflect the actual amount of your purchase.

If you have a credit card and want to purchase your books on your own, go directly to the website

If you are on a payment plan, don't have a credit card, but want to purchase books on line, you can come to the Bursar's Office, pay us, and we will grant you a line of credit. This credit line can only be used at the Akademos online bookstore. If you choose this option, any unused credit will be applied to your tuition account.

All you have to do is:

  1. Obtain a book advance authorization form from the Bursar's Office or from the center administrators.
  2. Fill out the authorization form and return it to the Bursar's Office so we can grant you a line of credit with Akademos.
  3. Go to the website and order your books.
  4. Have your books delivered to your home or place of work.

The MCNY Online Bookstore is now open for students who want to buy their books with a credit card.
