Textbooks for Extended Learning Division students

Textbook lists - FALL01 Term

Textbook lists - FALL02 Term

Our online partner bookstore is MBS Direct. MBS Direct gives full refunds if courses are cancelled. Because of all of the possible versions (bundled, packaged, with CD-ROM, etc.) of the same book, there are many ISBNs - and often several editions - associated with each textbook. The ISBN shown on the textbook list is what we provide to the bookstore. Saint Martin's University cannot be held responsible for textbooks purchased through other sources.

Expected credit balance

All students with expected credit balances who are using Federal Title IV funds (Direct Loans, Perkins Loans, Pell grants or SEOG) to purchase their textbooks must have a completed refund request form on file with the University every time before a fall/spring/summer term starts. Please select "Yes" authorizing the application of ‘allowable charges’ on the form. Completed forms may be hand carried, faxed, scanned and emailed, or mailed to the JBLM Main and McChord Extended Learning Division campus offices, or to the Student Accounts office. Please contact Yume Shipley to request a book voucher to be issued through MBS Direct.

Book vouchers using scholarships/Chapter 31 voc rehab

If you are planning to use scholarship or Chapter 31 vocational rehabilitation and employment funding to buy your textbooks, please register early. Once you register, we will verify your status and account balances and will forward the authorization to MBS Direct. An email from MBS with your authorization number will be generated and sent to your Saint Martin's email address between 24 to 48 hours after you register.

If you have any questions, please contact Yume Shipley.

Note! The last day to use scholarship or voc rehab funds to purchase textbooks, using MBS Direct, is one week after the start of the term. After that time, you can still purchase textbooks from MBS Direct at your own expense with a credit card.
