Textbooks: Ordering and Financial Aid

Many students wonder how to find out what textbook(s) are required for a course. The Online Campus Bookstore is the place to go!

When you go to the bookstore website, you will see a page that looks like this. To find your books for a specific course there, simply start typing in the name of the course in the search field (upper-right corner) and a drop-down list will appear. Ignore the “Find Your Course” options in the middle of the page.


The drop-down list will look like this. The online section of a course will have either “A1 OL” or “B1 OL” after the course code, depending on which session it is in.


Once you click the name of your course, it will list your textbook(s) for the course. To get the ISBN and other information, simply click on the book title. You can then use this to order your book from another source if you would¬†prefer (such as Maranatha’s Amazon store).

If you are currently receiving federal financial aid, such as Pell Grants or Stafford Loans, did you know that you are able to use that financial aid to purchase your textbooks? To do so, you must purchase them through the campus bookstore. Prior to visiting the bookstore site, email DeAnn McKee (DeAn.McKee@mbu.edu) in the Business Office to request a voucher code to use at checkout.

Physical textbooks should be ordered at least 10 days in advance of a course starting; however, many books are now available as e-books. If that is true for your course, you will see it as an option next to the textbook.
