    WLC does not sell textbooks on campus, so you need to order your books online before coming to campus. Textbook information is listed with your courses on myWLC (Academics/My Courses). Click on the plus sign (+) next to a course number to see the titles and ISBN.  

    Use the ISBN to order your textbooks from any online source (such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Chegg, or AbeBooks). Remember that the textbook price showing with your course is the list price for new books. You may rent or buy used books unless the professor has specified a need for new books (primarily for workbooks and lab manuals). 

    If you are unsure of what to order, email your professor from your WLC email account with questions.


    Did you know that you can link your Warrior OneCard to a U.S. Bank Student Checking account? U.S. Bank representatives will be on campus during WOW Weekend, or you may visit and open an account online.

    U.S. Bank has a branch across the street from WLC's campus, inside the Froedtert Hospital, Specialty Clinic - Level 1. Or contact the U.S. Bank Branch Manager Jared Bonow, 414.454.4600.

    As a true partner, U.S. Bank support the WLC mission by offering Financial Wellness seminars throughout the year to teach students about banking basics, including scholarship opportunities. To learn more, visit
