Transfer Dual Credit
If you are intending to bring in credit from a dual credit or PSEO program you will need to order an official transcript from the college or university that awarded the credit. The transcript must be sent to the Office of Admission.
As the school year is quickly approaching, it's time to start purchasing all of your necessary class materials - including textbooks. Follow these stress-free step-by-step instructions and cross "purchasing textbooks" off of that college to-do list! Make sure your class schedule is nearby. 
  1. Visit The University Store website
  2. Click on the "Textbooks: Buy or Rent" link at the top
  3. Click on "Begin Price Comparison"
  4. Refer to your class schedule and select the correct term name, department, course and section for each of your classes 
  5. Once all of your classes are listed in the Course List, click on the green "Compare Prices on These Course Materials" button
  6. Browse through the lists to compare the University Store prices vs. prices on the web!
  7. Click "Add to Cart" next to the textbook you would like 
  8. Click "Checkout" to review your selected textbooks
  9. Follow the checkout procedure
  10. Make sure to select whether you would like to pick up your textbooks at the University Store or have them mailed to your home address!
