COVID-19 Information

Kodiak College continues to function primarily via alternate course delivery, remote work, and controlled access to campus facilities. Campus services are available virtually and face-to-face by appointment. Please contact us if you have any questions. Learn more about UAA's COVID-19 response. Check on current eligibility for the vaccine.


Students can find textbook information for all Kodiak College courses in the appropriate booklist. Textbook purchasing is different for distance and face-to-face courses. Students can purchase distance course materials through our online bookstore. For face-to-face classes, students can buy on-campus course material in the bookstore on campus.

Savvy Student Tip

If you are not charging your books to financial aid (voucher), then better prices are often available through other vendors such as Chegg, Amazon, and AbeBooks. Use the booklist to locate the ISBN, book title, and edition to help you find your book for the most economical price. Rentals and digital versions are also a reasonable option for having access to your books sooner rather than later. 


Distance Courses

Most materials for online courses can be purchased by following the easy step-by-step process.

  1. Open the link to the MBS bookstore and Choose Let's Get Started. 
  2. Choose the current term, then distance education, then type the the name, subject or CRN of the course.
  3. If that doesn't work, find "view all courses" in the bottom left and find your courses in the list. 
  4. Choose View Your Materials on the bottom right. Add all of the materials you need into your cart.
  5. Proceed to checkout. You can pay with credit card, PayPal, or a Voucher.

Note: Students planning to charge their books to their financial aid will need a Voucher ID. Please contact the bookstore before purchasing to determine if you are eligible to use anticipated excess financial aid to order textbooks before the aid is disbursed. Book advance requests can not be processed until all Financial Aid requirements have been completed, processed, and aid has been approved.
