FAMU will Streamline the Book-Buying Process

Ordering the right books for courses just got a whole lot easier!

A new era of simplicity and convenience has arrived! Florida A&M University and Barnes & Noble College Booksellers have partnered to offer a feature that allows students to order their textbooks at the same time they register for classes by linking the school’s course registration website (iRattler) to the bookstore’s website. This innovative service eliminates the need to search for books one course at a time and provides students with the assurance that they are purchasing the right book for the right course.

Here’s how it works… After a student registers online for classes, they can click on the “Order Textbooks” link in the student center-self service. In seconds they will see the list of the required and recommended textbooks for their courses. Students can decide which books they want to purchase and if they want new, used or digital editions. Approximately two weeks before the start of classes, the books will be shipped to the location specified in the order (delivery charges apply) or, if preferred, they will be boxed up and waiting at the bookstore.

For more information about using this service, please contact the FAMU Bookstore at (850) 599-3070.
