Getting your books on time:

There are many online book sellers available through the internet. If you purchase through a vendor other than MBS Direct, please take care to order the correct edition and ISBN. Before ordering, research and understand the expected delivery date, shipping method, and refund policy. We recommend ordering from MBS Direct with UPS delivery. If you do not have a physical address as required for UPS delivery, you may use Mat-Su College as your delivery location only when ordering from MBS Direct. Mat-Su College cannot track orders from vendors other than MBS Direct.
