* Order Textbooks Online and Skip the Lines

Did you know you can order your textbooks online ahead of time and skip the long in-store lines? Simply visit the bookstore online at, click on the "Textbook" header, select your courses from the dropdown menus, and the website will pull a personalized list of Required and Recommended titles!

Now if you plan on renting any books, you will need to put in a credit card to secure the rental BUT you can pay a different way! Are you an Athlete? On VA benefits? Or just need to use your Book Loan before your Financial Aid is distributed? You can do that AND rent! When it comes time to check out, make sure you follow the directions, putting in your credit card AND selecting the secondary form of payment as "Student Account". When the order comes through, the appropriate account will be charged (nothing will be charged to the credit card unless you don't bring them back at the end of the semester).

Not interested in renting? Then you don't need to put in a credit card at all if you're using a different form of payment! Have a Barnes and Noble giftcard? You can use that with us too! The only form of payment we do not accept are checks.

Please allow up to 72 hours for web order processing during the first 2 weeks of class. You will receive 2 emails: one confirming the order, the other to let you know what it is ready to pickup/has been shipped. Please wait for that second email before coming in to pick up your order. If you have decided to have your books shipped, the tracking number will be on that email.

Of course, if you don't feel comfortable ordering online, you're more than welcome to bring your schedule into the store and we will pull your books at our back counter and you can pay at the register. Remember, if you're renting, you need to have a credit card to secure the rentals, even if you're using a different form of payment.

* CiSM Scholarships Available for Science and Math Majors

Are you a science or math major? Are you interested in computers, data, or the intersection of both?

If so, we’d like to invite you to apply for NSF-funded scholarships of up to $1,500 to participate in the Computers in Science and Math (CiSM) Certificate Program this fall. For just a few more credits, you could complete an interdisciplinary certificate which future employers and professional programs will see attests to the fact that you “get it” - the way computers, data, science, and math are all intertwined and integral to modern (and future) society. You will have a few additional useful and ‘marketable’ skills to boot!

To be eligible for the scholarship, you must be a US citizen or permanent resident, demonstrate financial need, as determined by the FAFSA, and have a UE GPA of at least 3.0.

To apply for the scholarship, email with an unofficial transcript and a short essay (~250 word) addressing the prompt on the application webpage. You should also make sure that you have submitted a FAFSA for 2021-22.

The application deadline is Monday, August 9. If you are awarded the scholarship, you should plan to enroll in two one-credit classes this fall: ID121: Intro to Scientific Computing (Tuesday/Thursday 8:00 – 9:15 am) and STAT 166: Introduction to R for Data Science (schedule TBA).

Interested? Please check out the CiSM website, and email Dr. Joyce Stamm ( with any questions.
