To find out what textbooks are required for courses, go to the TC home page, then find Quick Links on the top right under the white search space. Go down to Schedule of Classes, fourth from the bottom Once you find your specific classes, you can click on textbook info for each one. It’s a white oval directly under each course listing. This will link you directly to the TC Bookstore website and show the textbook list. You can also use whywaitforbooks.com, which connects with the bookstore for orders. They will get your books ready for pick up. Just be careful about ordering out of stock books as sometimes they take a really long time to come in, and you are committed to purchasing them there.
Of course, you can order your books from any supplier, such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. Just purchase required texts now–wait on recommended books. Typically you will not have assignments due for the first class, but you will for the second.
If textbooks are not listed, required texts will be discussed during the first class.
The TC bookstore is now part of Columbia’s. Look for the Columbia University Bookstore/Barnes and Noble, just by the 116th St subway stop, 2920 Broadway at West 115th. It’s accessible through the first floor of Lerner Hall, then down the escalator. If you are looking for sweats, hoodies, school supplies, school spirit gear, this is also the place.
