Textbooks and Course Materials
In partnership with Slingshot, North Greenville University offers all students a book and course material rental service that automatically fulfills and delivers all of your required course material rentals directly to you before classes start. These textbook rentals will be for the student’s use during the term and must be returned to Slingshot at the conclusion of the term or class to avoid being charged the full price of the textbooks.
When you register for classes, Slingshot will automatically receive your book rental and material order.
How it Works
Manage Your Preferences
Students are automatically opted-in to this service each semester but if you prefer to purchase or rent your books from another source, you may opt-out. To set your preferences for the Slingshot Textbook Service, log in to your My NGU portal> select Students > Forms and Information > Important Forms > Slingshot Preferences (Textbook Delivery Service). There are other opportunities available through Slingshot Textbook Service for an additional charge. You may choose to purchase any of the materials outright rather than rent or you may also choose to receive print only copies for all textbooks for an additional charge per credit hour.
Set Up Payment
When payment plans for the semester are made available, you will be able to set up your payment plan for the semester by logging in to the My NGU portal, selecting the tab “Students” on the top menu, and clicking “Student Accounts” on the left-side menu that appears. On this “Student Accounts” page, you can set up a payment plan. For full-time undergraduates, traditional part-time undergraduates and NGU online your textbooks and course materials will be covered by a low fee per semester that is already included in your student payment. This service is also provided for graduate students for a low cost.
