• Textbooks are provided through the UW-Platteville textbook rental service.  Students pay Segregated Fee (B) for textbooks for each term enrolled.  The fee is prorated based on the number of credits enrolled, with a maximum charge per semester. Each term, students will complete a textbook agreement that outlines textbook center policies and procedures, including textbook distribution, returns, fees, and replacement policies. For full details, visit FAQs-Distance.

    Depending on the courses you enroll in for the term, you may be required to purchase additional materials not provided by the textbook center, including but not limited to lab kits and software. Review your course when you register in PASS to see if additional materials are needed.

    The Textbook Center will not ship textbooks internationally. International students will need to secure all required textbooks and course materials for their courses. You will have to complete the Segregated Fee Waiver Application each term.

  • You are expected to purchase your textbooks. Textbook costs are not included in tuition and fees. Financial aid is not disbursed until after the start of classes, so you will have to pay for your textbooks out of pocket, and then reimburse yourself once your financial aid is disbursed.

    You will find textbook information for print-based courses in your course manual. Print-based course manuals are written for a specific textbook edition. Therefore, textbook information is included with course materials to ensure that students purchase the resources that align with the course manual they receive.

    A Distance Learning Textbook Order Form will also be included with your course materials with instructions for purchasing your textbook(s) from the UW-Platteville University Bookstore. Although you can order from a different vendor, UW-Platteville isn’t responsible for those purchases.

    To ensure that you purchase the correct textbook, search vendor sites using the ISBN from your manual and verify the title, author, and edition. Do not order the international edition of your course textbook. It will not be compatible with your courses. A list of estimated textbook costs is available to help you plan each semester.
