Our Free Textbooks offer is an investment in you. Concordia Portland has agreed to assume the costs of textbooks, E-books and other required materials and their shipping costs for all MEd students who start in March 2017. Read More...
How do I qualify for free textbooks?
Complete all of your application materials, be admitted to the Master of Education degree program and enroll to start on March 20th, 2017.
How will it work?
- Prior to the start of the first course, registered and enrolled students will be sent an email to confirm their shipping address and book information. Just confirm the address and shipping information and books and/or E-books will be on the way.
- If a student registers and enrolls in the final week before the March start date, their order will be confirmed automatically by Concordia to expedite shipping.
- There will be additional shipments throughout the program after every 3 courses to provide books and E-books for future courses.
Will “suggested” or “non-required” supplemental reading materials also be free?
No. The free textbook offer applies to required reading materials only. Students who wish to purchase copies of suggested and/or supplemental resources will still need to do so at their own expense.
I have already started my MEd at Concordia University-Portland. Do I get free textbooks now?
No. The Free Textbook offer is for new students who are enrolling for the first time at Concordia University-Portland and are starting their program on March 20, 2017.
Are shipping costs covered?
Yes. International shipping costs are covered if necessary.
Can I keep the E-books?
E-book access is controlled with a license from the publisher. In most cases, the license is good for 180 or 365 days after delivery, depending on the publisher. Access to the materials will expire at the end of the licensing period. Concordia University cannot extend the license on the student’s behalf and the student will need to purchase access to the materials for themselves if they need, or want, to extend.
What if I withdraw from the program?
Students who withdraw from the program forfeit the opportunity to continue receiving free textbooks. Students on a Leave of Absence will be unable to order new books until they return from Leave and re-enter their program.
Will this promotion apply to later start dates?
The Free Textbooks promotion is being offered for the March start date. Concordia Portland reserves the right to extend the promotion to later start dates, but cannot guarantee availability beyond March at this time.
