Q: How do I get a Class Material List?
A: You will get the Class Material List through the College Information Management Services; once the payment is processed, you are registered in the course. Click on the course code then on the Resources tab
Q: Where can I obtain my course textbooks?
A: Once registered in a course, the Course Material List is available on the College Information Management Services; click on Student Information then Textbooks tab. All books are available for purchase at The Campus Bookstore at Queen's University www.campusbookstore.com or by fax (613) 533-6419 / Tel (613) 533-2955 or 1-800-267-9478. It is at the discretion of the student to purchase the textbook at Queen’s or somewhere else except for the Readers. Readers are available exclusively at Queen’s bookstore. It is ultimately the student's responsibility to ensure that he/she obtains the textbooks required for a course.
Q: What does it mean when the Campus Bookstore at Queen's University website mentions that for a given textbook, the quantity available is "0"?
A: For DCS undergraduate courses, two to three months before the start of a semester DCS requests the Campus Bookstore at Queen's University to "adopt" a specific number of textbooks, meaning that the Bookstore orders a specific number of copies of the textbook from the publisher. When a larger number of students register for the course, the Bookstore may be short on books, in which case the availability shows "0". However, the student should not assume that the Bookstore is unable to provide the textbook; instead, the student should fill out the order form and send it to the Bookstore. The Bookstore will then find a textbook for the student. The student will be advised if the Bookstore expects problems in obtaining the textbook. Once the Bookstore has a copy of the textbook it typically takes 2 to 3 business days to send the book to a location in Ontario, and 5 business days for a location outside Ontario. For overseas locations, timings vary greatly depending on the country. If you have any concerns regarding your order, you can email the Bookstore at Frontdesk@campusbookstore.com to obtain more information. Note that for Readers, an availability of "0" is of little concern, as it normally takes 24 hours for the Bookstore to obtain an extra copy from the Printer.
Q: How do I submit my assignments?
A: For all regular PG courses, the method for submitting assignments is via your RMC Moodle course. By submitting through your online course, the date of submission is automatically recorded and the assignment is automatically directed to your instructor. If you don't have a Moodle account, please contact Support (Support@rmc.ca) to obtain one. Do not send your assignments directly to your instructor.
