Books and First Assignments
Your books may be purchased online and in store through the Mitchell Hamline Bookstore.
Reminder: student loan disbursements will not be available prior to the start of school; you will be responsible for securing the money to buy your books.
Your first reading assignments will be posted online in August. Your professors strongly prefer that you not read your first assignments too early, and that you not read ahead in your texts as they may choose to cover the material in them in a different order or not cover some sections at all. It is for these reasons that first reading assignments are not available until August and that we recommend you not purchase your books until August.
