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 textbook voucher information can be found here. You can view the list of textbooks and materials needed for your courses through PRISM by following these instructions.

Textbook Purchasing

UW Colleges Online works directly with eFollett, an online textbook vendor, to carry UW Colleges Online course textbooks. The UW Colleges Online bookstore is your one-stop shop for textbooks, course materials, school supplies and more.

You may utilize other vendors, however, purchasing or renting your textbooks through the eFollett campus book store helps ensure you receive excellent customer service and obtain the correct materials and also allows you to use textbook 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 stores.
  • 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.
