How Do I Get My Course Materials?

In order to get your books as part of your veteran's benefits, please do one of the following:

  • Bring your schedule and student ID to the CSU Bookstore, and pick your books from the sales floor. When you are ready to check out, come to the Course Materials Information Counter and inform the staff you are purchasing with you are a veteran or sponsored student benefits.
  • Distance students can email Elizabeth O'Brien-Smith with your student ID number, preferred shipping address, and the course materials (and if applicable, any requested supplies) you need. We will ship them via UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail.
    • Please do not place an order through our website, as this can cause billing errors.

When Should I Request My Books?

We strongly recommend requesting your books at least a week prior to classes beginning. Students who are studying abroad should request materials earlier to allow for extra transit time.

What About Supplies?

Some students have a benefit that allows them to purchase supplies. If you have a supplies benefit, purchase your supplies at the bookstore when you purchase your textbooks. Distance students can select items you need from our supplies department product listing online, and email Elizabeth O'Brien-Smith with your requests.
