WLC does not sell textbooks on campus, so you need to order your books online before coming to campus. Textbook information is listed with your courses on myWLC (Academics/My Courses). Click on the plus sign (+) next to a course number to see the titles and ISBN.
Use the ISBN to order your textbooks from any online source (such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Chegg, or AbeBooks). Remember that the textbook price showing with your course is the list price for new books. You may rent or buy used books unless the professor has specified a need for new books (primarily for workbooks and lab manuals).
If you are unsure of what to order, email your professor from your WLC email account with questions.
