What Textbooks & Course Materials Will I Need?

Please visit our online Textbook Calculator at http://go.cotr.bc.ca/tuition/tCalc.asp after July 15th when it is updated with FALL materials, to determine what course materials you may need.  If you do not find your course materials listed, check the course outline to see if there are materials to be purchased or if they are provided within the course.

Note that we sometimes have USED BOOKS available for about 75% cost of new. Should you be seeking a fully digital option due to distance, please ask your Instructor if they have a link to any online options - these are often added to a course page on COTROnline.

We cannot confirm materials or costs for future semesters as course materials are adopted by faculty on a semester by semester basis and often change.

To order course materials shipped to you please call our Order Desk at 250-489-8265 or 1-877-489-2687 local 3265 after August 1st when we open for fall shipping, or email Bookstore@cotr.bc.ca with the following information:

    • Your name and student number
    • A list of which books you want to purchase
    • your full shipping address and phone number

Do not email credit card information! We will contact you to confirm your order and then arrange for payment.

Shipping is via courier (not post office) which usually takes a few days to reach most Canadian locations, and 2 weeks for most International shipments. Shipping costs will vary. You will need to provide a safe address where someone can sign for the shipment when it is delivered.
