Textbooks for Troops

This program is for military and veteran students enrolled in WKU courses who do not receive a book stipend or a book scholarship.  Qualified applicants check out their textbooks for an entire semester, and then return them for another student to use next semester.  It's the ultimate recycling program!


Click here for the request form and program rules.  Fill out the form and return it to Tate Page Hall 408 as soon as possible after you have signed up for classes.   Requests must be in to our office one week prior to class start date.

"I love the textbooks for troops because it saved me money and took the burden of searching for them off me while I was preparing to start school." W. Scarbeau

"It's helped me in my leadership class and I would've otherwise had to buy the book. The book was slightly used, but in great condition. It even came with the important stuff already highlighted. It was great, and you have a great program." J. Mercer
