The ESF Virtual Bookstore will go live for the Spring semester on December 9, 2013. You will not be able to place your book order until that date.
To view textbook requirements before registering for your classes, visit the Spring 2014 ESF Schedule of Classes on the registrar's page, find your class and section and click the link for "view textbook information".
As a new student at ESF, you will be registering for your classes when you arrive on campus for Orientation in August/January. Once your schedule is finalized, you will be able to purchase your books online. We will have computers and staff available to assist you with the process. There will also be a presentation during Orientation that will go over the entire process.
