All continuing students except for PSEO Option B students may purchase required textbooks at the Cedarville University Bookstore on campus or online as well as other vendors. Be sure to purchase using the correct ISBN number.

Continuing PSEO Option B students will have textbooks and course materials provided free of charge and will not be reimbursed if these are purchased otherwise.

To determine required textbooks along with ISBN numbers, follow these instructions:

  1. On the Bookstore home page, select the textbook icon labeled "Order Textbooks".
  2. Select the link "View your course schedule and textbook requirements"
  3. Log in with your username and password to see your schedule. Be certain the correct semester is chosen from the drop down box.
  4. On your schedule, select the link "Textbook" next to each course number.
  5. On the next screen, you will see information explaining purchase options; scroll to the bottom and select the green button "Begin Price Comparison".
  6. You will see all available options for your textbook: new, used, or rental. You may acquire your textbooks from other vendors directly from this webpage, however, be advised that if you need to return or exchange your textbook, Cedarville has an excellent, no-hassle return policy that other vendors may not offer.

Textbooks for Ohio PSEO Option B students will be distributed at new student orientation. Ohio PSEO Option A, Ohio non-PSEO and all other new students will have opportunity to purchase textbooks at the Cedarville University bookstore at new student orientation. Out-of-state students who are not able to attend new student orientation should follow the instructions under “continuing students” to determine required textbooks and ISBN numbers.

It is advisable not to purchase text books and materials too far in advance, especially during the summer months for fall semester, as materials can change when courses are updated. Online courses have at least a one-week orientation period to allow time to purchase materials.
