Getting Books

The Phoenix Bookstore, located on the 2nd floor of the University Union, is where you’ll find text books, cool Phoenix clothing, school supplies and much more.

How do I know which books are needed?

Log on to your SIS account. Click on “Order Books” located under the student links section found on the left hand side of the page. Select the correct term.  Click “Order Books.” This will take you to The Phoenix Bookstore website.  The required and recommended books for the classes in which you are enrolled will be displayed.

You can also find textbooks by accessing The Phoenix Bookstore website. Once there, click “Textbook Ordering” on the top left. Select the correct term, department and section of your class. The section is very important! Click “Add Course.” Repeat these steps until all the classes from your schedule are entered. Once your current course list in the right hand box is complete, click “Get Course Materials.” The required and recommended books for the requested classes will be displayed.

Continue through the checkout. In the delivery method section, click the “Pick up at the Store” box located at the far right.  Do this even though you would like the books shipped. This is the only way to access the SIS payment option and have the books shipped. Under the payment option, select SIS. Enter the last nine digits of your student ID as the SIS number.  In the comments box type, “I am an online student.

Do you have a book rental program?

See the Rental Policy.

Books can be purchased at The Phoenix Bookstore, online, or through the EZBooks program (bookstore employees package your books for pick up). See the deadlines for ordering and pick-up dates.

Other payment options can be seen here. These fees must be paid by the due date or late fees will apply. If students do not have enough financial aid to cover all of their charges including pass points, they will be put on the payment plan.

Can I return a textbook if I drop a class?

You can return a textbook if you a drop class. For your reference, there is a deadline each semester to return textbooks. A receipt is required and all items must be in original purchase condition.

Do you have a book buyback program?

At the end of each term, The Phoenix Bookstore gives students the chance to sell their books back for cash. Generally book buy-back begins the last day of classes and runs through the end of exams.
