Curriculum fees have been eliminated for all on-ground courses beginning June 1, 2013, and all students will be responsible for purchasing their own textbooks.
If a student has been charged a curriculum fee for a class that starts after June 1, a refund will be applied to the student’s account.
Friends University Bookstore will continue to provide good service to our students and we encourage students to purchase their books from Friends University Bookstore.
Students who qualify for book vouchers should contact Financial Aid.
Students may order books directly from the Friends University Bookstore online from the Bookstore website at friends.bkstr.com or through their class schedule in Self-Service Banner (SSB) by linking from each class to the Bookstore.
