Most courses, including online courses, have required books and other materials that will need to be purchased.  The bookstore's website can show you what textbooks and other course materials you'll need for the upcoming semester. You can purchase most items online or in person at the Chattanooga State Bookstore, which is located on the first floor of the Student Center.

For Chattanooga State courses, go to the main Chattanooga State website ( and click on BOOKSTORE in the top menu, or use this direct link: Chattanooga State Bookstore

(NOTE: If your class section number starts with an R, such as MATH1530-R50, you're enrolled in a TN eCampus online course and you'll need to go to the TN eCampus bookstore to view and purchase your materials.)

On the Chattanooga State Bookstore website, click on BOOKS at the left side of the menu.

You can choose Shop by Course, but we recommend Shop by Student ID to see all the books and materials needed for the courses on your current schedule.
Under Select Your Program, it should say All.
Under Select Your Term, pick your upcoming semester. (Note: Pick CREDIT if you're enrolled in regular Chattanooga State classes or TCAT if you'll be in a Technology Center program.)

For Shop by Student ID: Enter your A-number (including the capital A) in the box that appears.

For Shop by Course: For each course you're in, select the Department, then your Course, then your Section, then click Submit.
For example, for ENGL1010-30, you should select ENGL, then 1010, then 30.
After you click Submit, you'll see a list of books and materials needed for that class. You can print the list or click the plus marks (+) in the list to see what buying options are available.

If you don't see any materials listed for a particular class, check again closer to the beginning of the semester, since some instructors may not have posted their required materials yet.

If you have any questions, here's the contact info for the bookstore:
