Preview Policy

Because the Educational Materials Center (EMC) is the sole source vendor for many of its products and all of the Michigan Model curriculum, we understand that you may need an opportunity to view the product before purchasing. To assist with this process we offer the following Preview Policy. We hope you find this a helpful solution.

The EMC will ship the products you request (preview order form ) for preview on a ship-and-cancel basis. This means that any item(s) not currently in stock will be canceled rather than back-ordered.

Videos are shipped from our preview library and have a more limited availability.

The EMC asks that you complete your preview within thirty (30) days of the date of shipment.

You will receive an invoice shortly after your preview is shipped. This invoice will include a $20.00 preview fee. Please note that this charge is non-refundable. This invoice is due and payable within thirty (30) days of the date on the invoice.

If you do not wish to keep the item(s) previewed, simply return the items in original condition with a copy of the invoice. Insure the shipment for the proper value as determined from the invoice. The price of any returned items will be credited to your invoice, and a corrected invoice will be sent.

If you have questions about the preview process, feel free to contact us by e-mail at emc@cmich.edu or phone 1-800-214-8961 ext. 4376.
