Terms and Conditions for webText Europe

Learn more about using webText, the online textbook ordering service at UMGC Europe.


Please note that your credit card will be charged at the time you place your order with webText. While we strive to ensure that our book inventory is accurate, books may not always be available for shipping from the UMGC warehouse or for you to pick up from your local UMGC program coordinator. In such cases, there may be slight delays between the time your payment is processed and when you receive your books. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Locating Your Credit Card Security Code
If you have a Visa, MasterCard, or Discover card, the security code is a three-digit number printed on the back of the card. It is always the final group of numbers on or above the signature line.
