Buying Books

You may purchase textbooks in person at the bookstore. You may also buy them online through WebAdvisor after you have registered for classes:

  1. Select McLennan Online Bookstore or My Class Schedule (click on buy books box at the bottom) to view a list of textbooks specifically needed for your classes.
  2. Choose from the required and optional, new and used textbooks.
  3. Select a payment method (including Financial Aid).
  4. Wait for an e-mail telling you where to pick up your order. Books are normally held for pickup until two weeks prior to the first day of class. You can order books after that time; however, the books will have to be shipped to you instead of picked up in the store.

Even if you don't order your books when you register, you can still do so at a later date.

Renting Books

Save money on your textbooks by renting them from the McLennan Bookstore. With the Rent-A-Text program, you get to:

  • rent books in the store or online, with in-store pickup.
  • pay for rented books with your preferred form of payment, including financial aid.
  • use rented books just as you would purchased books - you can still highlight and take notes in the books.
  • purchase your textbooks at the end of the term if you want to keep them.
