Hey Cougars,

Congratulations, you are almost done with Summer Term! Good luck on any last finals! This week we included tips and tricks for purchasing textbooks for Fall Semester and information about the Online Orientation Module.
Purchasing Textbooks
What books do I need?

MyBookList links to your class schedule and shows exactly what books you'll need. It also shows price comparisons between the BYU Store and other textbook purchasing and rental sites. You can even order your books straight from MyBooklist. Click HERE to go to MyBookList.

Purchasing Options
Textbook purchasing options include buying the physical copy, using an e-book, or renting. Choose whatever option you feel will work best for your learning style and your particular courses. If you have questions about requirements for your specific courses, reference your course syllabus on Learning Suite. When ordering textbooks, make sure to use reliable websites!

BYU Store & Receipts
You can purchase many of your textbooks through the BYU Store. To avoid long lines, purchase them online and come into the store to pick them up. After purchasing, be sure to keep your receipt because receipts are required to return textbooks to the BYU Store. Additionally, refund deadlines are listed on receipts. That's one valuable piece of paper!

BYU Book Exchange
Trying to find a good deal on books? BYU Book Exchange operates like a classified ad system among BYU students for textbooks. This online platform allows students to post books they no longer need and buy used books from other BYU students. Explore the website HERE.
Ways to Pay for Textbooks
Making Money Manageable

When you pay for your textbooks at the BYU Store, use your BYU ID Card to charge them to your university student account. This will put the cost of all your textbooks on MyFinancial Center, where excess scholarship money may be applied. It also gives you 45 days from the day of purchase to pay for your textbooks.
Online Orientation Module
Getting Ready for Fall 2020!
Earlier this summer we sent you a link to an online orientation module. If you haven't completed the module, we invite you to create an account and go through it before Fall Semester starts. For those of you who already have an account and completed the module, you will continue to have access to the training through the account you previously created. We have some updated information about the colleges at BYU, so feel free to get back on and check out that content or review the other information.

As a reminder, here is how you create an account:
+ To login to the orientation it will ask you to create an account. When you are creating your login and password, in the login field that says Student ID you will use your Net ID, the username you use to sign into your BYU account. Doing this will allow you to log into your New Student Orientation account using your Net ID and the password you create. 

Tag us in Instagram @byu1styear and share your favorite part of the module!
