You will receive an e-mail from the Registrar in late July or early August with information about obtaining your course schedule. Once you review your course schedule and identify the list of course codes and section numbers for your fall classes, you can identify the books selected for those courses and order your textbooks from any source. Instructions on identifying textbooks adopted for each course on the Penn State Bookstore website are set forth below, as well as instructions on ordering books from the Penn State Bookstore. If you are expecting student loans and have included the cost of books in the amount you are borrowing, you may also charge up to $800 in textbooks at the Penn State Bookstore at University Park (ONLY required textbooks may be charged — no other items). The amount charged will be added to your Bursar account. If your loans disburse prior to the charges posting to your account, you will be responsible to make payment to the Bursar’s Office. If your books are being shipped, your order needs to be placed with the Penn State Bookstore no later than August 12, 2014 in order to receive your books.
The Penn State Bookstore is located on the ground floor of the HUB-Robeson Center in University Park. You may stop by the Bookstore to pick up your books in person, order the books online so that the books are prepackaged and you only need to pick them up, or order the books online to be shipped to your home. Detailed instructions are available online.
