3.1. Textbooks (Read Before You Buy)

Ordering Textbooks

Be Advised

Students are encouraged to wait for courses to start before ordering their books. Instructors could make a last minute change in the book used, or they may required students to use an eBook instead of a hardback book. If you have questions about the book options, call the bookstore directly at (888) 251-2665.


Many of our courses use eBooks which require an access code. The access codes are NOT universal and change from semester to semester. Students are encouraged to confirm the textbook requirements before paying for an access code that is no longer valid from 3rd party vendors. Neither the TN eCampus Virtual Bookstore nor TN eCampus can refund or be responsible for refunds of books ordered outside of the TN eCampus Virtual Bookstore. 

Order Process

To order your books from the TN eCampus Virtual Bookstore, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the TN eCampus Virtual Bookstore Opens in new window.
  2. Choose "Books" and then select the appropriate options from the drop down menus. For Program, choose TN eCampus. For Section, choose ALL. Fill other terms according to your your Term, Department and Course.

  3. Review the book options, select the book and add it to your cart. Follow the prompts to establish an account and pay for the book(s).

Access Codes

Some access codes are sent to email accounts on file instead of standard postal mail. Please provide a correct and frequently checked email address in your account information. Codes are usually arrive within 48 hours. If a code is not received by email, look for it by postal mail within 7-10 days.

Instructors typically allow time for students to receive their access codes during the first week. Courses may also provide a temporary pass to the eBook to allow for the arrival of a personal access code. Please check the Course Content section of you the class to see information provided on your eBooks. For more information contact your instructor for any needed clarification.
