Spring quarter course materials now available

To: UCSC Students

From: Bay Tree Campus Store

This quarter we started using a new online platform that streamlines the process for finding and ordering your course materials. UCSC has partnered with Akademos to provide textbooks and other course material at reduced prices and offer more purchasing options including new, used, digital, and rentals. 

For spring quarter, some new features have been added to enhance the individualized shopping experience.

Once you’re registered and have chosen your classes for spring quarter, the required textbook and resources for each class will automatically be added to your personalized page. 

  • Go to ucsc.textbookx.com and log in with your CruzID 

  • Review your personalized course page

  • Select from a variety of textbook formats including new, used, eBook, rental and purchasing options

  • Shop from the peer-to-peer marketplace

  • Price match guarantee on new books

  • Free delivery options for orders over $49 (not including Marketplace)  

At the end of the quarter, you can use this platform to re-sell your books.
