Textbooks – Frequently Asked Questions


How can I buy textbooks?

The University Store does not sell physical textbooks. Students can choose to buy books from our online partner.

How do I know what textbooks I need?

Students can find information about their course materials through Student Information Online (SIO), or through their class syllabus. Please check your syllabus to see if your instructor intends to provide your course materials through other means (Canvas, PDFs, course packet, etc)
