Winter Term Student Resources
Students may order books from the CU Bookstore. The bookstore is open at the beginning and end of each semester and rental orders can be placed online and either shipped to your home, or picked up on campus. Your professors will let the bookstore know which books are required for each course, so you’ll only need to know your course schedule to order your books.
CANVAS is an online course management tool that professors will utilize to display course related content. Some courses may require that you submit assignments through CANVAS or take quizzes or tests. To login, use your student email name (example JSmith12) and your email password.
