Buying Options

  • Order for in-store pick-up: Reserve your product(s) online and select a pick-up week during summer orientation or at the start of term.
  • Order for home delivery: Place your order online and have your items shipped for the ease and convenience of direct-to-your-door delivery! Bill purchases over $750 to your student account, and we'll waive your shipping costs.
  • Shop in person: Visit us at either store location to take advantage of expert consultants and hands-on product demos. Don't forget your Mcard!

Payment will be processed at the time of pick up or by phone prior to shipping. For your security, please do not send credit card information via email. See our Buying Guide for a complete list of accepted payment methods.

Student Account Billing

Ann Arbor campus students can bill purchases over $50 to their student account through Saturday, September 30. If you pay for any purchase over $750 with student account, we will waive any shipping fees.

One significant benefit of billing the order to your student account is that the Office of Financial Aid will receive notification of your purchase and approve financial aid alternate loan applications to pay for your order, if applicable. The amount you owe, after financial aid has been applied, will appear on your Student Statement of Account by September or October 2018. Please note that purchases charged to student account are non-refundable.

Parents

Parents who wish to pay for products (and prefer not to bill to their student's account) can:

  • visit the Showcase with their student.
  • be entered as an Authorized Purchaser on the online order form.
  • be authorized to pick up on behalf of their student via an email request from the student's U-M email account to computer.showcase@umich.edu.
  • purchase a Showcase gift card that the student can redeem for the supplies they need.

More special information for parents

Shipping

Place your product order, and we can ship your products anywhere in the continental U.S. (excluding P.O. Boxes and U-M campus addresses).

We recommend selecting in-store pickup on orders placed after August 21, especially if you are traveling from out-of-state. We are open during Move-In (August 29–31) and over the Labor Day weekend (September 1–3), so you can pick up your order and anything else you need before classes begin.

Shipping Fees (includes insurance):

  • Customers billing orders over $750 to student account will have their shipping charges waived.
  • Orders up to $750 (after tax): $15 flat fee.
  • Orders over $750 (after tax): 2% of total.

If you request shipping, we will email your U-M email account within two business days to finalize your order. Once all products are available to ship, we will contact you by phone to collect payment information.

Cancellations

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 email account to computer.showcase@umich.edu with the subject line: "Welcome to Michigan 2018".

Product Availability & Updates

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. We encourage you to place an order knowing that substitutions are possible!

i>clickers

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 Canvas 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 $19 cash or $30 in-store credit (no receipt required, one per person) as long as the device is working, is in good condition, and has the serial number intact.

Art and Design Students

The School of Art and Design requires a special computer package. Please check with your program before making computer or software purchases. Ordering for the 2018–2019 academic year will be available through July 29, 2018.

Dental Hygiene Students

Dental Hygiene E-Learning students are required to purchase a computer system specific to their program. Laptops are delivered to students at their initial on-campus orientation and come fully loaded to meet the program's necessary hardware and software requirements. Please contact your program for details about Dental Hygiene E-Learning computer system requirements.
