Shipping & Returns

Terrapin Tech serves the University of Maryland, College Park community. As a certified Apple and Dell campus reseller, items that include an educational discount require that we verify your status as a UMD student or faculty or staff member. We reserve the right to cancel any order placed without a valid UID number. 


The shipping fee is calculated based on the weight of the item. The weight of each item can be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound. 

When placing an order, your shipping and delivery dates are based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.
