Every year we get questions from eager incoming freshmen about how and when they should go about purchasing books for the fall term. This step-by-step guide will help you navigate the process. Before we begin, just remember that not every instructor will have their books posted yet. You might have to wait until August to find out what book(s) you will need for your class(es). And, let’s be honesty, you probably aren’t going to read them this summer even if you do get them before August.
1. Log into My.Butler.
2. Click on “Self Service” then “Student Center”.
3. Click “Enroll”.
4. Click on “My Class Schedule”. This will bring up a list of your classes with a link to “Buy my books” at the bottom.
5. Once you view the books that are needed for each class you can purchase them from the Butler Bookstore. You can also buy or rent discounted books from Amazon, Chegg, eCampus.com and Half.com. If you know of a good place to purchase or rent textbooks from, please leave your comment below.
