Student Services


Most online courses for the Bachelor of Professional Studies program require textbooks.

Please note that because Bachelor of Professional Studies students are not required to pay segregated fees, they must purchase their textbooks (rather than renting them).

Textbooks can be purchased through the UW-Eau Claire Book Store. Visit the Customized Textbook List to order your books.


The UW-Eau Claire Bookstore will ship out your online order within 48 business hours. Charges for UPS ground shipping are $6.95 for the first item and $1.95 for each additional item. UPS ground within Wisconsin usually takes 2 business days to arrive. Expedited shipping is available at additional cost outlined while placing your order. Orders placed Friday afternoons and through the weekend will not ship until Monday. UPS does not provide Saturday delivery.

Return Policy

All items purchased through the UW-Eau Claire bookstore that qualify for a return can be returned for a full refund within the first week of classes with your receipt. For online orders, credit will be issued back to the card that was charged through the website. Items that are not returnable: UWEC coursepacks, opened software, opened online access codes, and any items without a receipt. Students are responsible for shipping items back to the bookstore if they wish to return them.

Dropping a Course:

If you drop a course, you are able to return your items purchased through the UW-Eau Claire Bookstore for a full refund within the first 30 days of classes. Regular return policy applies.

Purchasing Texts from Other Vendors:

You are welcome to buy your books anywhere; however, it is your responsibility to obtain the correct book (and appropriate edition) listed for your class. Be careful to use the exact ISBN numbers to ensure that you have the correct edition of the text. Allow enough time for delivery to ensure your books arrive by the start of your course. UW-Eau Claire is not responsible in any way for texts purchased through another vendor.
