Textbook Orders

Ottawa University Bookstore offers a textbook pricing comparison function on its online bookstore. It is designed to allow students the ability to compare other retailer prices against Ottawa University website prices.

When entering the Ottawa University Bookstore website (, students will go to the TEXTBOOKS tab at the top of the page.

  1. Select GET TEXTBOOKS.

  2. Select the Term, Department, Course, and Section affiliated with your class.

  3. Click the ADD button to add the class to your course list.

  4. Repeat these steps as many times as you like to select books for multiple classes.

  5. Click the Compare Prices on These Course Materials button to see a full list of your books for each selected class.

When the student chooses to "Begin Price Comparison" the screen shows the title in the top left, along with the store prices to the right. Beneath store prices is a listing of alternate prices from other vendors.

The student can then choose to add either the OU book, or the competitor's book to their cart. In both cases  the items appear in their shopping cart within the Ottawa University site, thereby allowing them to complete the transaction, or continue shopping without having to leave the website.

Please note the Ottawa University student may be eligible to receive a book advance for purchasing textbooks (check with your Financial Aid Advisor for details). The book advance is only applicable to items purchased through the Ottawa University Bookstore.

Note: Some online courses may require e-textbooks. Students will not need to purchase these textbooks from a vendor. Their cost will be charged automatically to the student's account when registering for the pertinent course. Instructions will be provided for download and usage.
