How to Order Your Textbooks

Use the order books link in WINGS Express. It will take your schedule and create a shopping list with exactly what you need for your courses. You can place an order as soon as you register for your courses. Orders are not charged or fulfilled until three to four weeks before the start of the semester to optimize the number of used books available for purchase and to ensure that all rental textbooks are returned from the previous semester.

Textbook Rentals

The campus bookstore offers more than 75 percent of available titles as rental textbooks. Renting a used book is often the most cost effective way to get your textbooks—those titles are usually 80 percent less than list price. Textbook rentals are due on the last day of each semester, but can be returned earlier. Your receipt will show the final due date. Due date reminders are also sent to the email address you give when renting the book. Use the same email address you used when renting and turn on push notifications to get reminders.

For details on the rental policy, please visit the Wright State Bookstore website and sign in to your account.

Digital Textbooks

The bookstore offers many texts in digital format to help you save up to 80 percent. Many digital titles offer rentals and purchase options; rental periods last 180 days.

Sell Your Textbooks

If you buy your textbooks, you can sell them back to the bookstore. You will need to bring a valid Wright1 Card and proof of registration for the course. The best time to sell back your textbooks is during finals week each semester. Visit the the Wright State Bookstore website and sign in to your account for more details.
