Semester Booklist

The Hoch Bookroom is committed to providing textbooks through drop/add week of each semester; after drop/add week, the Hoch Bookroom cannot guarantee that all stock will be available due to the nature of inventory returns.

Course syllabi will become available in Moodle two weeks before the semester begins. For questions, call the Academic Office at 616.222.1422.
