Textbooks and Labs
Textbooks: You will need to acquire textbooks and labs for all online courses offered through Marian's Adult Programs.
Since there have been issues with shipping delays and the supply-chain recently, we recommend you order textbook(s) and labs at least two weeks before the start of each course. Explore all options to find which is most effective for you: new, used, rental, or e-books. Please ensure that you will receive your materials before the start of your classes as instructors will not adjust assignment or exam dates. Course materials may be obtained from any source, although, we definitely recommend ordering materials from the Marian University Book Store, whether in person or online.
Degree-seeking students may be eligible to use financial aid funds to purchase textbooks and lab kits/online access through the Marian University bookstore.
BIO 214, BIO 225, and BIO 226 require that you purchase an access code for online and/or listening labs. Be cautious if you purchase a used book or rental book for these two courses because they may not have the access code you need to complete the course.
