  6. At the top again, in the menu below the tabs, select Founders Bookstore. It will open in a different window.
  7. Scroll about midway down the page and locate the section called “Buy Textbooks”. In that box, locate the pull-down menu titled “Search By Course”.
    1. If you are an AGS student, select your correct cohort
    2. If you are a Traditional student, select the correct semester
    3. Click on GO, once you’ve made your selection.
  8. Once the page loads, select your course, first by Department, then by course number, then lastly, if needed, by section number.

    1. The Department is usually a four letter designator, which matches the department of the respective course. For example, BUSI denotes a Business class.
    2. The course number is a four digit number following the department code.
    3. The section number denotes which class period of a certain class you are in, if there are more than one instance of that class in the same semester.
  9. You will then see what books that specific class requires, and how much that they cost from the Founders Bookstore.
  10. Have a Great Semester! If you have any questions about this process, please send an email to us at support@okwu.edu with as much detail as possible.
