Bookstore Stocks

The number of books stocked will be based on the estimated enrollment and the availability of the book. 5%-15% of the estimated enrollment number will be ordered for books that are readily available through Amazon and other booksellers. Orders for harder to get books will be for a higher percentage. Book lists will be made available to students at least six weeks prior to the start of each semester.
