IMPORTANT: Due to the pandemic, we are expecting delays from all major publishers. Families that order books in June will experience few, if any delays. Families that wait until late July/early August may experience backorders. eCampus is doing everything in its power to prevent delays. We urge families to do the same and order early!
Student Email Information
On June 5, we will email student email credentials to the primary parent. Parents will need this information to purchase textbooks. Be sure to check your spam/junk folder if you do not see it in your inbox. Please email Mrs. Rosanne Grigoletti if you do not have this email by 5:00 PM that day.
Three Ways to Purchase
Families will have the option to choose between the “Digital Rental Bundle“, “Textbook Bundle” or “Use Course Selection” methods. The bundles are the most affordable option. Rental books offer up to 50% savings from purchasing a new copy.
Physical Book Rental Bundle: Consists of all physical textbooks which are rented and returned to eCampus at the end of the school year. When purchasing a bundle, eCampus will automatically select the books for the courses your child will be taking.
Digital Rental Bundle: Consists of eBooks for all texts that are available in electronic format and rented physical books for the remaining texts. Rented texts are returned to eCampus at the end of the school year. When purchasing a bundle, eTechCampus will automatically select the books for the courses your child will be taking. (Clarification: If a text is available in electronic format, you will only receive it as an ebook – you will not receive a physical textbook as well.)
Use Course Selection: Use your student’s class schedule to purchase physical or electronic books for each of your courses. This method can also be used to purchase supplies such as locks and goggles for science courses.
To Order a Textbook Bundle:
The login procedure has changed slightly this year, so please read closely, especially steps #5-7:
Download detailed directions for ordering textbooks.
REMINDER: You must purchase bundles for one student at a time. This ensures that the proper textbook bundle is ordered. If you have more than one student, please repeat this entire process, using the proper student credentials in step 4 above.
Purchasing by Course:
Important: If you are purchasing ebooks, be sure to purchase for each of your students in a separate transaction. That will ensure that each student will be able to access his/her proper ebooks from the eCampus site.

Book Buy-Back & Rental Returns
All families are responsible to return rental books to eCampus using a pre-paid shipping label. Save your Amazon boxes so that you can pack up the books at the end of the year!

If you chose the rental bundle, then you must return the rented textbooks to eCampus. Return shipping is free, using your eCampus account. The return label must be printed no later than 5/30/20 to avoid incurring late fees.
