Textbook Purchasing

We encourage students to purchase or rent their textbooks through Follett for UW Colleges Online. Our support staff cannot provide student support for textbooks rented or purchased through other vendors and UW Colleges Online is not responsible for textbooks or learning materials purchased through another vendor. 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 Follett or any other third party vendor. 

For questions regarding textbook orders, including shipping policies, please contact Follett directly at 262-524-1378. For any other questions related to textbooks or required course materials, please contact the UW Colleges One Stop Center at 1-877-449-1877 or email.


Textbook Vouchers for Pell Grant Eligible Students

Textbook vouchers are available to students who are Pell Grant eligible and have financial aid to cover tuition, administrative fees and textbooks. Because Follett is a private vendor, textbook costs cannot be deducted directly from a student's anticipated UW Colleges financial aid award unless the student is eligible to receive the Pell Grant. 

Steps to purchasing using a Textbook voucher: 
  1. Complete financial aid process and have verifiable Pell financial aid.
  2. Submit Textbook voucher form to UWC Online and UWC Online will notify Neebo when voucher and financial aid is approved.
  3. Neebo will send an email to your UWC email account with a financial aid account number, which can be used during the check out process.  You cannot purchase your books with financial aid until you receive approval from Neebo. If you don’t receive e-mail approval in 7-10 business days, contact UWC Online One Stop Center at 1-877-449-1877.
  4. Purchase books through Neebo and select "Financial Aid" under Billing Information. You will then be required to enter your financial aid account number before completing the check out process.
