Student Resources - Textbooks and Course Materials

Finding your course materials

For an introduction to finding and obtaining your course materials, please review the course materials page.

Ordering from the OSU bookstore

You can order your course materials through the OSU Beaver Store. See the Ecampus FAQs page if you have questions about purchasing, renting, returning or selling your course materials. You may also purchase e-books and academically priced software/hardware through the OSU Beaver Store.

Purchasing electronically delivered course materials

Digital textbooks and access codes can be sent electronically if requested in the “special instructions” field. No returns or refunds are permissible after the code is electronically sent. There are no shipping costs for electronically delivered course materials.

Finding classes with electronic course materials

Each term, Ecampus publishes an electronic course materials page that lists classes with electronic textbooks (or no course materials).

Free, open textbooks for OSU courses

The Ecampus Open Educational Resources Unit works closely with Oregon State faculty members to make college more affordable through the use of free, open textbooks that can be accessed online. Check out the growing list of available open textbooks.
