Ordering Textbooks

The following textbook orders information is for full-time and fully employed programs only.

Note: Executive program classes will be contacted separately.

For Session A and Full-Term courses, textbook orders are due November 20, 2020.

For Session B Courses, textbook orders are due February 1, 2021.

Faculty Desk Copies & Electronic Resources

Faculty should first reach out to the publisher directly to request textbook desk copies and instructor materials. If verification is required, please have the publisher contact Doris Jones by telephone at 310.568.5553 or via email at Doris.Jones@pepperdine.edu.

By registering on the publisher's website, faculty will automatically receive an email notification when a new edition of the book is available. Please be aware the bookstore may not be able to order older editions; therefore, it is best to have a back-up plan in the event this occurs.

Electronic resources can be secured from our Pepperdine library.

Faculty Textbook Orders Through Pepperdine Bookstore

Faculty are encouraged to place student textbook orders through the Pepperdine Bookstore. This will allow students to order books online with free shipping. Students also have the option to rent some textbooks through the bookstore. If you would like to check if your book is already available for rent or if you wish to select from a list of books that are available to rent, please visit Follett's home page.

Please email your textbook order to: 0855mgr@follett.com and copy pgbsbooks@pepperdine.edu
