Textbook Ordering Information

Over the summer, the Andrews University Bookstore transferred to the management of Tree of Life Bookstores, a Christian organization serving many universities nationwide. The new management offers expanded purchase and rental options for the textbooks you need, including a wider library of electronic textbooks. The Bookstore is open Monday–Thursday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. and Friday, 9 a.m.–1 p.m. It is closed on Saturday and Sunday.

Under the bookstore’s new management, books for on-campus and distance classes can be found at one URL: Once on that page, you can then choose the appropriate course designation.

To search for textbooks for your class, you’ll need to choose first the department and then the class code. We’ve included a handy department code list in this email for easy reference. So if you’re looking for a psychology class, you’ll need to first select “BHSC” (Department of Behavioral Sciences) from the “Department” drop-down menu. Then select “PSYC” from the “Class” drop-down menu.
