Purchasing Books


Students are responsible for purchasing or renting their textbooks each semester. Erskine allows students to purchase books and materials from any vendor to reduce student costs.

Required materials are found on the student portal under “Course Textbooks” within each assigned class. Each course will provide the book title, author(s), and ISBN, which can be used to locate the books from the vendor of choice. The “Course Information” and “Course Announcements” sections may also have important information about materials. Book information should be available a minimum of two weeks before the beginning of each semester to allow time to order and receive the material. Please, do not wait until classes begin to order books.
