Purchasing Textbooks

All books must be purchased online.

There are many different editions, translations and revisions to required books and the only way to be absolutely sure that you are receiving the correct book is to buy your books through the Holy Cross Bookstore affiliated MBS Direct/BNC Services website.

Students may start to purchase textbooks beginning in late-July for the fall semester and mid-January for the spring semester. 

What to know when ordering books.
You will need the department abbreviation, the course number and the section number.  All of this information appears on your STAR course schedule.

Example: The course number assigned to Anthropology 101 section 01 would be ANTH101.01.
