2020-2021 Undergraduate Catalog

Textbook Services

Textbook Services coordinates the textbook usage program, in which a primary textbook is provided for most of the undergraduate courses. Students pay a per credit hour fee for textbook usage. Supplemental and/or additional books/materials may be required and can be purchased at the Bearcat Bookstore. Students pick up their textbooks at the beginning of each semester and must return the books by 5 p.m. of the last day of finals for the semester. Late fees are assessed for books that are not picked up or returned on time. Students enrolled in web only courses may borrow their primary textbooks from Textbook Services. The request can be submitted by email to nwtxbk@nwmissouri.edu and needs to include 919#, course number(s) and address for shipping. Students must pay for shipping charges on borrowed materials. All textbooks, CDs and other course materials borrowed must be returned to Textbook Services, 800 University Drive, Northwest Missouri State University, Maryville, MO 64468 within one week after the final exam is complete. More information can be found on the Northwest web page under Textbook Services. Students may contact Textbook Services by emailing nwtxbk@nwmissouri.edu if they have specific questions.
