Ordering Books and Course Materials

Most courses have textbooks and/or other course materials that are essential to your success. Required course materials are available for the current term.

Ordering Timeline

It is recommended that you order your course materials at least two (2) weeks prior to the start of your course to ensure that you will receive your items on time. If you are enrolled in both Minnesota Manufactured course sessions within the term, you should consider ordering all of your course materials prior to the first start date.

Paying for Course Materials

Purchases will need to be made using a credit card. You cannot charge to your financial aid, but you can use your financial aid disbursement to pay off the credit card charges.
