Course materials are available for purchase from the online bookstore at www.postbookstore.com. It is the student’s responsibility to place online bookstore orders. Students should plan to order course materials two to four weeks prior to the start date of the course to ensure that textbooks will be available in time for class. Students can arrange for materials to be shipped to their homes or to Post University for pickup in the Mail Room in East Hall during normal business hours.
Electronic Course Materials
Electronic Course Materials are course materials that are available in a completely electronic format and are used exclusively in many courses. These are materials developed and gathered by faculty to address specific program and course curriculum topics, and best support effective student learning in the course. Materials may include electronic versions of textbooks, articles, case studies, YouTube videos, and electronic access codes that allow students to access customized publisher materials. A special fee covers the costs of these materials which are available to students on the first day of the term. Post University has worked with book publishers to negotiate the lowest possible prices. Students are strongly advised to take advantage of the automatic, one-day access to Electronic Course Materials.
Selected courses provide students with the opportunity to opt-out of the fee, these are the courses that make use of a non-customized publisher e-book that is available through VitalSource. Students enrolled in these courses will automatically be provided access to the e-book and charged the fee, but they may choose to opt-out of the e-book access through a link specific to the course. Students who opt-out of the e-book access will have the fee removed from their bill. Students who choose to opt-out, as described above, are responsible for purchasing the required course materials elsewhere, and they will not be eligible for an extension on course assignments while they await arrival of their course materials. The opt-out process will be available one week prior to the start of the term and must be completed by the Add/Drop date for the term.
