Most online courses require a textbook. Textbooks may be purchased through online or traditional retail bookstores.
Be sure to verify the title, edition, author, ISBN number, etc., that are listed for each required text in your class(es) and plan ahead to have your textbooks available by the start date of your course. Books for Spring 2015
New or Used Text?
In most cases, you have the option to purchase a new or used textbook. When purchasing a used text, please note that some textbooks require students to have a special code to access required supplemental materials. These codes are often not available with used texts, but they can be purchased separately. If you purchase a used text, check your course syllabus to see whether you need to purchase this code. If so, buy the code through the book's publisher.
What are eBooks?
eBooks are electronic copies of books where the student purchases access instead of the physical book. Rates vary depending on the text and how long the student would like access to the materials.
May I Purchase Texts from Other Vendors?
You are welcome to buy your books anywhere; however, it is your responsibility to obtain the correct book (and appropriate edition) listed for your class. Be very careful to use the exact ISBN numbers to ensure that you have the correct edition of the text. Allow enough time for delivery to ensure your books arrive by the start of your course. UW-Extension is not responsible for texts purchased through another vendor. Please review the return and book buyback policies when purchasing. Books for Spring 2015
