Summer 2020 Textbook Checkout Information

Textbook Rental will be shipping out textbooks via FedEx for summer sessions. At this time there will not be an option to pick up textbooks in-person. In order to do so successfully, we need your assistance with the following steps:

Shipping Address

  • Please verify your local address listed in WINGS by May 8, 2020. This local address will be the shipping address for your summer textbooks.
  • If you need to change your local address, directions on how to do so can be found here.

Shipping Timeline

  • Return of spring semester textbooks are required for summer session, therefore summer session will be shipped out as promptly as possible upon their return.
    • All first session textbooks will be shipped by June 1st or sooner. This is unavoidable due to the current circumstances and instructors have been made aware of this situation.
    • Textbooks for second and third summer sessions will be shipped after the first session books.
  • Please be aware that late course additions will affect the above timing for associated textbook shipment.


  • At this time, summer session textbooks are due back per normal guidelines of the following day after the last day of finals, i.e., Monday, August 17, 2020. If there is a change in procedures before this date, it will be communicated via your UWL email.
