Ann Arbor campus students can bill purchases over $50 to their student account. The amount you owe will appear on your Student Statement of Account in August or September 2014, depending on your order/purchase date. Please note that purchases charged to student account are non-refundable. If you pay for any purchase over $750 with student account, we will waive any shipping fees (for orders shipped in the continental US).
Other accepted payment methods are American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, debit card, cashier's check, traveler’s check and cash. Eligible staff can take advantage of payroll deduction. Sorry, we cannot accept personal checks.
Parents who wish to pay for products (and prefer not to bill to their students’ account) should visit the Showcase with their student, if possible, as we are not permitted to sell directly to parents. Alternately, students can authorize a parent for pickup by filling in the “Authorized Pickup Name” field on the pre-order form OR by sending an email request from the student’s U-M account to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment will be processed that the time of pickup or by phone prior to shipping. For your security, please do not send credit card information via email.
Visit the Showcase location you selected during your selected pickup week.
You will need to:
Place your product order before August 15, and we can ship your products to any address in the continental U.S.
If you request shipping, we will email your U-M email account within two business days to finalize your order. If your order contains Microsoft software, you will need to sign and return a Microsoft agreement before we can ship your order. Once all products are available to ship, we will contact you by phone to collect payment information.
Pre-orders can be cancelled at any time prior to payment without penalty. If you need to change or cancel your order, simply reply to your order confirmation message or send email from your U-M mail account to email@example.com with the subject line: "Welcome to Michigan 2014".
Unclaimed orders held for in-store pickup will be automatically cancelled after 5pm on Friday of the requested pickup week.
We work hard to keep all products in stock, but vendor supply and shipping issues are sometimes out of our control. In cases of short stock supply, priority is given to students who pre-order, so we recommend ordering as soon as you know what you need.
Our vendor partners typically begin offering new products in late spring and continue throughout the summer. It is not unusual for us to experience midsummer product changes. If a vendor announces a change between the time you place your order and the time you pick it up, your pricing will not increase. Also, we will work with you to make sure you get the item(s) you want or offer a comparable substitute. We encourage you to place a pre-order knowing that substitutions are possible!
Please note that software is NOT returnable, so choose carefully. See our return policy for more information.
Dearborn and Flint students, our licensing agreement with Microsoft does not permit us to sell Office products to you. The good news is that you can purchase it for the same low price on your home campus! Check with your IT department for details:
Up to half of incoming undergrads on the Ann Arbor campus will need an i>clicker in their first year. Check your course descriptions in CTools to see if any of your classes require one. If you buy one and don’t need it, it can be returned for a full refund as long as you have your receipt and the original packaging is unopened and undamaged.
We buy back used i>clickers for $15 (no receipt required, one per person) as long as the device is working, is in good condition and has the serial number intact.
The School of Art and Design requires a special computer package. Please check with your program before making computer or software purchases.
