Textbooks and Course Materials

Instructors choose textbooks and course materials to ensure a quality course and learning experience.  Students can find information about required textbook and course materials at the College Store, at the online Bookstore, and on course syllabi.  If it is not clear what is required, ask the instructor.  The quality of a student’s learning experience can be significantly harmed by failure to acquire required materials or by acquiring the wrong edition or translation of a specific text.      


It is the responsibility of each student to acquire required textbooks and course materials before they are needed for the completion of any assignment.  If this is impossible, it is the responsibility of the student to make other arrangements that do not interfere with academic progress and success.  Students entering a class during the official add/drop period must acquire their materials using the fastest possible means.
