APUS Graduate Bookstore - TBD

Effective 10/26/18, our bookstore partner (EdMap) is out of business.  Final shipments will leave their warehouse on 10/24 with no orders accepted after 2 p.m. ET on 10/24.  This guide will be updated when a new bookstore partner is selected.

Although graduate students are responsible for acquiring their own course materials, APUS strives to minimize such costs. Items may be purchased independently, through publisher-provided sites, or directly from the (TBD) APUS Bookstore. Some suggested alternate vendors include:,,,

Graduate students should contact to ensure they are purchasing the correct course materials. Materials may not be finalized until 30 days before the course start date. If students purchase incorrect course materials without contacting, they will not be reimbursed by APUS. Also, when using the the APUS Bookstore for ordering course materials, students must ensure that the course materials ordered match the course start date. Different sessions may have different course materials listed. Purchasing the incorrect course materials because of this will not be grounds for reimbursement from APUS.
