  5. Click Submit
Directly through the bookstore link:

  1. Go to http://lsua.bncollege.com/.
  2. Click the link to Textbooks at the top left.
  3. Use the drop down menus to select term, Students declared in 100% online accelerated programs should choose Fall2 to purchase those books then choose Fall3 to see those requirements.  Students in on campus programs but taking a 7 week class should choose Fall, Spring, or Summer
  4. Click Find Materials for Course(s). The information will display:

  • Exactly what is required and what is optional (some courses require access codes)
  • Multiple options to rent, purchase, get paper or digital – whatever options the publisher has.
  • Students can use financial aid to purchase textbooks if it is processed (viewable in NetPartner from the MyLSUA page)

If you choose to search other sites to get text materials, the ISBN number is displayed. The student is responsible for having the correct edition of the textbook by the first day of class – faculty expect students to have books on the first class day.
