Most online courses require a textbook. Textbooks may be purchased through the University of Wisconsin-Extension Bookstore, powered by Follett. Students may also look into using other online or traditional retail bookstores. (Purchasing your books through Follett will ensure that you get the right editions of the right books for your classes.)

Buy Books through Follett

Frequently Asked Questions About Textbooks

New or Used Textbooks?

In most cases, you have the option to purchase a new or used textbook. When purchasing a used textbook, 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 textbooks, but they can be purchased separately. If you purchase a used textbook, refer to your course syllabus and then purchase the code if you need it. You will need to purchase the code through the book's publisher.

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) for your class. Be careful to use the exact ISBN numbers to ensure 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.
