To help you get settled more quickly during your orientation, we recommend that you preorder your textbooks at the University Bookstore.

Preordering your textbooks before classes begin will give you the opportunity to be best prepared for the first day of classes and choose from our many options of new, used, rental and digital textbooks.  Please have your class schedule available when placing your order for textbooks.  Prepayment is required, so please have your payment option available upon checkout.  If you are using your Knight Card to purchase your textbooks and want to ensure your funds are available or you have questions about your class schedule, please contact SAS at 315-268-6451.

Once your textbooks are preordered and prepaid, all you will need to do is present your student ID and order number at the University Bookstore in order to pick up your online order.  If you choose not to preorder your textbooks online, to save time in-store, preregister for your textbook rental account at
