Books and Materials
Indiana Wesleyan University's Adult and Graduate programming has been, in part, designed to serve the needs of busy, working, adult students. With this in mind, our normal processes within the majority of our programs include IWU procuring all of the required textbook and resource materials for our students and shipping them directly to the address most convenient for the student. This is a service we are happy to provide, and is one that we believe allows our students to focus more of their valuable time on their coursework and learning.
We do, however, understand the desire for individual students to seek to maximize their educational dollars in various ways. This need prompts IWU to allow students the opportunity to choose their own personal textbook and materials procurement option. This choice will allow a student to opt out of Indiana Wesleyan University's standard textbook and materials procurement and distribution processes and secure their required materials in whatever manner they so decide. More information about this option can be obtained by contacting IWU's Textbook Distribution Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-621-8667 extension 2854.
For students choosing to participate in IWU's normal material procurement and distribution methods, books and other course materials will be provided and will be delivered on or prior to the first class session. "Sharing of materials" is not an option and all books/materials must be purchased directly from IWU by each student. Students receive payment schedules during the registration process which indicate the total amount charged for books and materials. The university does have an arrangement with a vendor who conducts "book buybacks" several times a year for all IWU students. Students desiring more information may contact the traditional campus bookstore at 866-468-6498 ext. 2210.
Please note: Textbook and material changes are inevitable. Should it become necessary for a student to withdraw from a course, all books and materials should be returned immediately, if eligible, to avoid additional charges if/when the course is taken at a later date. If materials are not returned, and course materials change in the time between withdrawal and re-entry, the student will be charged for new materials. Materials are eligible for return credit within 60 days from the date of withdrawal provided the student has not attended any of the class sessions, or posted any assignments for online classes, and the materials have not been used or damaged (writing, highlighting, physical damage, CD's & access codes intact in original sealed packaging, etc.) in any way.
