Order your textbooks in time to meet your start date!
We recommend that you order textbooks as soon as you receive notice that you are enrolled in courses, so that you have your books by the time your courses start. ALU’s textbooks are available in print or as eBooks. An eBook is an electronic or digital version of the text. You can typically download an eBook to a reading device with internet capability, such as Nook, Kindle, or iPad. If you order printed textbooks, expect that those books are typically shipped by ground and may take 7 to 14 days to arrive.
You may access the latest updated textbook lists below. Please note that these lists simply reflect the latest compilation from the school; before you actually order books, please use the latest information that Student Services can provide to you about your courses (such as information in the last updated syllabi), not using these textbook lists!
Should you have questions on the latest textbook information, Student Services staff can be contacted at 213-252-5100 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Student Services will respond to inquiries Monday through Thursday 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM Pacific Time Zone and Saturday 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM Pacific Time Zone.
