Frequently Asked Questions


Where do I get my books?

You will be able to purchase textbooks, manuals, and all necessary materials at The Carleton Bookstore located in the Sayles-Hill Campus Center. Most instructors hand out a list of required texts the first day of class; the bookstore also has a complete listing of required and recommended texts for each course. Once you’ve registered, you can order or look up the textbooks for your classes on the bookstore website: Just follow the textbook links. You can also call the bookstore with questions at 1-800-799-4148 or email them at If your placement in certain courses (e.g., foreign language) will not be definite until early in the term, it is advisable to delay purchase of these textbooks until exact placement and registration are confirmed.
