Finding Your Textbooks

You can find the necessary textbooks for your classes by using the class search tool on ASSIST. After entering your search criteria, click the "View Syllabus, Instructor CV and Textbook” link for the class. Textbook requirements are also available through your faculty syllabi.

Do you receive Financial Aid? Don’t wait for your funds, use them when you need them. Financial Aid students can transfer funds to their Vaquero OneCard to purchase textbooks via the “Vaquero OneCard ACCOUNT - TRANSFER FUNDS” link under the UTRGV Services tab in ASSIST.
