Textbook Information


1) Use the convenient ORDER BOOKS link on WINGS.  This link takes YOUR schedule and creates a shopping list with exactly what you need for your courses in all the affordable choices.  Orders may be placed as soon as you register for your courses.  Orders are not charged or fulfilled until 3-4 weeks before the start of the semester to ensure the most used inventory possible (many used books are rentals currently checked out so orders held until rentals come back during finals week).

2) Grab your course schedule and click on TEXTBOOK WIZARD.  Please make sure to choose the correct section number you are registered for to ensure correct books listed.

3) Bring a copy of your course schedule to the campus bookstore and they will be happy to help you find your textbooks.  The best time to start shopping is generally one-month before the start of each semester.


The WSU Bookstore offers over 75% of available titles as rentals.  Used rentals have the most savings of up to 80% off list price.  Please follow the HOW TO FIND YOUR TEXTBOOKS directions on how to determine which books are available as rentals.  For details on the rental policy including how to secure your rental please visit TEXTBOOK RENTALS page.

Rentals are due on the last day of each semester.  Your receipt will show the due date and this is the last day to return a rental.  Rentals may be turned in any time before this date. 

Rental due date reminders are send to your email you gave when renting.  Be sure to check your junk/clutter folders for rental reminders.  Another great way to get rental reminders is to download our MOBILE APP – MYCOLLEGEBOOKSTORE.  Be sure to use the same email address you used when renting and turn on push notifications.


Textbooks that were purchased (not rented) may be sold back to the WSU Bookstore.  A valid Wright 1 Card and proof of registration for course may be requested.  The best time to sell back your textbooks is during finals week each semester.  More details on how to sell back textbooks here: HOW TO SELL BACK TEXTBOOKS


Digital textbooks are gaining popularity and over 40% of titles are available in a digital format with savings of up to 80%.  Many digital titles offer both rental and purchase options with the rental option typically lasting 180 days.
