Bearcat Book Bundle

Bearcat Book Bundle is a course materials delivery model offered by the Willamette Bookstore for undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences. The program helps simplify the process of sourcing, purchasing, and delivering books for your registered classes each semester before the first day of class.

Through this program, physical books are conveniently packaged and provided to students on a rental basis, and access to digital materials is offered directly through Canvas. Students no longer need to consider the individual book price, as the cost is a set price of $20 per registered credit hour.

All students are automatically enrolled in the bundle program, although you can opt-out. The bookstore will continue to offer course materials for purchase in addition to offering the Bearcat Book Bundle service.
