In partnership with Slingshot Bookstores, North Greenville University offers all students a book and material acquisition service that automatically fulfills and delivers all of your required course materials directly to you before classes start.
When you register for classes, Slingshot will automatically receive your book and material order.
How it Works
Manage Your Preferences
You can set your preferences for the Slingshot Textbook Service by logging in to the My NGU portal, selecting the tab “Students” on the top menu, and clicking “Forms and Information” on the left-side menu that appears. On this “Forms and Information” page, to the right of the screen under “Important Forms,” you will see a link for “Slingshot Preferences (Textbook Delivery Service).” Opt-in is the default setting.
Set Up Payment
When payment plans for the semester are made available, you will be able to set up your payment plan for the semester by logging in to the My NGU portal, selecting the tab “Students” on the top menu, and clicking “Student Accounts” on the left-side menu that appears. On this “Student Accounts” page, you can set up a payment plan. For full-time undergraduates, traditional part-time undergraduates and NGU online your textbooks and course materials will be covered by a low fee per semester that is already included in your student payment. This service is also provided for graduate students for a low cost.
Your books and required course materials (i.e. lab coats, art supplies, etc.) will be delivered to you before classes start.
- Residents, your textbooks and materials will be waiting for you in your room at move-in.
- Commuters, you can pick up your textbooks and materials before classes start at NGU’s Post Office.
- NGU Online and graduate students, your textbooks and materials will be sent to your preferred address.
When class ends, simply return your books by their return due date to NGU’s University Store. Alternatively, you can log in to the My NGU portal and select the “Slingshot” link to connect to the site. In the far-right column, click “Return Rentals.” Select the box next to each item you would like to return and click “Return Rentals” to generate a pre-paid shipping label you can use to return your materials to Slingshot for free.
