Submission of this form does not order your books for you! You must order your books directly from MBS Books!
Students may purchase books from any vendor of their choice. Only MBS can offer you a voucher to charge your books toward your financial aid. If purchasing from a vendor other than MBS you are responsible to ensure you're ordering the correct (and complete) set of required textbooks. Reference ISBN numbers to ensure you have the correct book and edition.
