In order for you to be successful at UW Colleges Online, most courses require that you purchase or rent textbooks and other learning materials. General textbook and Pell Grant voucher information can be found here, but if you have any other questions, please contact the UW Colleges Solution Center at 877-449-1877 or uwconlinesupport@uwc.edu.

Textbook Purchasing

UW Colleges Online works directly with eFollett, an online textbook vendor, to carry UW Colleges Online course textbooks. You may utilize other vendors, however, purchasing or renting your textbooks through eFollett helps ensure you receive excellent customer service and obtain the correct materials and also allows you to use Pell Grant vouchers, if applicable. UW Colleges Online staff cannot provide support if you choose to purchase your materials through other vendors.

Purchase your textbooks through our approved vendor, eFollett for UW Colleges Online.

Other Considerations

  • The required textbooks and materials for UW Colleges Online courses will not be available in UW Colleges campus bookstores.
  • It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all required learning materials and textbooks are purchased by the first day of the academic term.
  • UW Colleges Online is not responsible for return policies through eFollett or any other third-party vendor.
