You must have your textbook(s) BEFORE your online course starts. Textbook costs are not included in tuition and fees. Financial Aid is not disbursed until after the start of classes so those funds will not be available in time for you to purchase textbooks.
UW-Platteville’s official textbook provider for online courses is MBS Direct. By ordering through MBS, you are guaranteed to have the correct book for your course and can select from a variety of options including new, used, e-book, and rental depending on the textbook. MBS also has a Buyback program so you may have the opportunity to sell your books back at the end of the semester.

Please remember that although you can order from a different vendor, UW-Platteville isn’t responsible for those purchases. To ensure that you purchase the correct textbook when purchasing through another vendor, search vendor sites using the ISBN number and verify the title, author, and edition. Don’t order the international edition of your course textbook. While it might be cheaper, it won’t be compatible with your courses.
