Online Bookstore

FNU uses Akademos, which operates, as our online bookstore.  Booklists are made available to students six weeks prior to the beginning of each term (see the timeline, right).  Since students don't have access to syllabi unitl two weeks before the term, the bookstore listing serves as their official list.  While students are free to buy their books wherever they choose, the TextbookX site is the only site that we refer them to.

Below is a link to the online bookstore.  This link is also available on the Banyan Tree portal page under Courses.
