UC Davis Stores' Shipping Policy

  • UC Davis Stores ships all online orders via Federal Express. We process all orders in the order in which they are received with priority going to orders with Next Day Air and Second Day Air shipping.
  • Orders may require merchandise be pulled from several of our stores. For this reason, the average order processing time is 2-3 business days.
  • The UC Davis Stores' Shipping and Receiving department is closed on weekends and during university, state, and local holidays. Please keep this in mind when placing your order.

*Shipping to P.O. Boxes*
When shipping to P.O. Boxes, please allow for an extra 2-3 days for delivery. Only ground shipping is allowed when shipping to a P.O. Box.
Note: Items purchased from the "Computer & Electronics" section of our website (computers, digital cameras, software, monitors, printers, MP3 Players, etc.) are not allowed to be shipped to P.O. Boxes. These items must be shipped to a location and usually require signature for delivery.

Shipping Methods:


The time it takes to ship an order via Ground depends on the order's destination. Please check the FedEx website for Ground delivery times from our zip code (95618): Please note that this is an estimate only and not a guaranteed delivery time.  For a guaranteed delivery time of one or two days (after we ship), please select Next Day Air or Second Day Air as your shipping method.

Second Day Air

Please note that "second day" does not mean you will receive your order in two days. It means you will receive your order two business days after it ships.

Next Day Air

Please note that "next day" does not mean you will receive your order tomorrow. It means you will receive your order the next business day after it ships.

International Shipping

If choosing international shipping, please choose the region that is closest to where you are looking for your order to be delivered. If we find the shipping method chosen to be in error, we will correct it before shipment, and you will be charged the correct amount.
