It is important that you order your textbooks so that you have them on the first day of class. Many courses require textbook readings during the first or second week of class, so please be sure to order them in time!

Ordering textbooks

To order materials, use the "Buy Textbooks" tool on the Illini Union Bookstore website. Bookstore textbook dropdown menu

IMPORTANT: When ordering, be certain to select your text from the OCE campus term listings that appear in the "Search by Course" dropdown box (not the regular on-campus course listings).

You may wish to purchase books or course materials from other retailers. Please be sure to match the ISBN listed in the Illini Union Bookstore to ensure you are buying the correct materials. Electronic books may have a different ISBN than a printed version. In these instances, check the title, author(s), and edition to ensure they match.

Not all courses have textbooks, and some courses require other ordering methods (Amazon.com, Association publication pieces, etc.). Please contact your program coordinator if you are unsure about ordering.
