Course Materials

The Western A.S. Bookstore will be closed effective 3/17/2020, with a plan to reopen 4/1/2020.


The Western A.S. Bookstore is moving to online orders only for Spring Quarter course materials. This change is effective on 3/17/2020.


With the shift to online orders, we are offering free shipping for all off-campus course material orders placed on or before 3/27/2020. Students residing on campus will be able to pick up their online orders in the Viking Union MPR starting 3/30/2020. An email will generate when the order is ready for pickup.



Spring 2020 course materials are available online for purchase, with 40% of the titles adopted by faculty for Spring Quarter now available in eBook formats in addition to traditional books. eBooks must be charged to a credit or debit card at this time. Digital alternatives will be listed alongside rental and purchase options wherever they are available. As always, purchases can be made through credit/debit cards, bookstore gift cards, or charging student accounts.


If you have questions about ordering, please read the instructions below, for further assistance email us at asbookstore@wwu.edu.
