Your instructor will contact you via email (using the email in your college profile) no later than 12 am (midnight) of the second day the semester begins (e.g. if classes begin January 12 you will receive an email from your instructor no later than 12 am January 13).

Tuesday, September 2: Textbooks for OIS 114, 131, 133 and CIS 124 and 224 are not available yet. Your instructor has information about using a 21 day free trial so the course can start on time.
Even though you will begin the class on a 21 day free trial be sure to prepay for the book\package at the bookstore. Financial aid stops paying for the books\packages before the 21 days is up and if you don't have a paid license before the trial expires you will lose all your work.

The Bookstore is taking preorders now and, if you preorder, will notify you when the books arrive.
