Textbook and Bookstore Information
Most online courses require a physical textbook. You will be required to locate and
purchase your textbooks before the start of class. Financial aid may be used to cover
the cost of books, if they are purchased at your campus bookstore. You can check your
available bookstore funds on EICConnect under E-bridge -> Students -> Financial Information -> Available Bookstore Funds.
Buying a Textbook Online
Once you are registered for classes, you can search for the textbook you need on the Barnes & Noble Bookstore. Go to Textbooks -> Find Textbooks and input your classes. Be sure to select your campus (Clinton, Muscatine, or Scott).
If you order online from our campus Barnes & Noble Bookstores they offer the option to ship books to your home.
If you decide to purchase books from another retailer, be sure to select the correct ISBN, edition, and publisher. You may want to check with your instructor before purchasing a text from a 3rd party retailer to ensure that no additional materials (cds, software download codes, etc) are required with the textbook. *Barnes & Noble does have a price match program, they will price match Amazon, bn.com, & local competitors.
You can find the list of needed textbooks with your schedule by going to EICConnect
-> My Bookmarks (on the right-hand side) -> Class Schedule. Pick the correct term
and click "submit."
