WVU Bookstore Programs

In coordination with participating Barnes & Noble bookstores on campus, WVU has created two ways to help students purchase textbooks faster—Registration Integration and offering financial aid as a payment option for textbook purchases.

Registration Integration

By utilizing Registration Integration, students can order and pay for their books and school supplies online during STAR Registration or anytime by visiting the bookstore web sites above. Once you have registered for classes using STAR Registration, you can automatically order your books by following these steps:

A shopping cart with your book order (based on your selected classes) will be created on the bookstore web site.You can change or cancel the order any time until your order is actually delivered.During the order process you can select your delivery options, such as hold for pick-up or home delivery.You can pay by Credit Card, Mountie Bounty, or you can pay using remaining financial aid after your tuition bill is paid.(FALL AND SPRING TERMS ONLY). When registering on the bookstore web site, be sure to use your PROPER STUDENT ID (9 digits beginning with 700, 701, or 800) and use the EXACT STUDENT NAME as it appears on STAR.
