As we begin our 2012-2013 school year we have partnered with Adams Book Company, Inc. for our book distribution beginning this fall semester. Our new virtual bookstore can be found on the web at www.k12studentdirect.com. Using our new virtual bookstore will be fast, easy, and will eliminate waiting in line. Adams has demonstrated itself to be a reliable and experienced educational distributor in business for over 60 years.
Beginning on July 16, 2012, you will be able to order your books online and have them delivered directly to your home. Adams has announced there will be a limited amount of used books on selected titles. These used books will be available on a first come first serve basis. Therefore we recommend that your book order be placed early in the summer. Some of the books may also be available in a digital version (eBook). If UNIS chooses to use the electronic version of a title, instructions will be provided on how to read online or download to your electronic devices.
A word of warning: The Student Direct Online Bookstore is our official online book service. If you search the web for new or used books, please pay special attention to ISBN numbers when ordering from other book companies. We can easily assist you if there is an issue with K12 Student Direct. We are unable to assist you when problems arise with another Internet bookseller.
Below you will find instructions and information concerning the Student Direct Online Bookstore.
