Examination and Desk Copies

University of Minnesota Press offers a significant collection of course books. We are happy to provide exam copies to qualified instructors who would like to consider them for course adoption and desk copies to instructors who have already adopted our books. 

 

Please read our policies below and enter your request by following our desk-exam copy request portal link at the bottom of the page.

EXAM COPY POLICY

Please limit requests to three (3) books per semester. Please also note that exam copies are only guaranteed for books priced at $30 or less. All other requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Book(s) will be billed at the time of shipping, plus shipping charges, with a 10% academic discount on a 90 day approval basis.

If adopted, notification of such must be received within 90 days of invoice date along with the following information: name, complete address, and date ordered from the bookstore. Once this information is received, a reversal of billing will be applied to the original invoice.

If not adopted, book(s) must be returned in clean, saleable condition within 90 days, and return shipping must be paid by customer. Books damaged due to poor packing will not be accepted and payment in full must be remitted. Once the book is received, a reversal of billing will be applied to the original invoice.

DESK COPY POLICY

Desk copies will only be sent once a book has been adopted and ordered for classroom use.
