Some classes require a particular calculator, notebook, safety quipment, or uniform. We can help with that.

Please contact our General Merchandise buyer, Donna Mahon, with your items and course code. These items can potentially be added to your course as a suggested purchase, alongside the textbook. Or they could be located in our generic Course Supplies section if they may be of interest to other students.
