Does my course need a textbook?

When registering for your course, the course description indicates if a textbook is required. While registering online, and the “Browse Bookstore” indicator is visible in the textbook section, a textbook is required.

If you do not have access to the website you may call the Centre for Professional and Part-time Learning for the title and cost of your textbook. A complete list of Professional and Part-time Learning textbooks is also posted in theProfessional and Part-time Learning section of the Campus Bookstore website for your reference. It is recommended that you do not open or write inside your textbooks prior to attending your first class, as textbooks returned must be in original condition (including shrinkwrap if applicable) and accompanied by the original receipt.
