       What is a section number?
DSU section numbers are typically 5 digits (12345). These should be available in the course schedule.

What is my student ID number? Is it the same as my financial aid number?
Your student ID number and financial aid number are the same. It is the 7-digit number on your schedule and your DSU issued ID. 
Ex. W01234567

I selected USED as my "NEW/USED Preference", but my total cost is for all NEW books. Did I do something wrong?
The total cost is ALWAYS based on new books, no matter your preference. This is because our new and used textbook selection is limited and always changing (buyback is done daily in addition to semester buyback). The new textbook price is the most you will have to pay.

Do I need to create a University Store account before ordering textbooks or merchandise?
If this is your first time ordering click "Register Here" during checkout. New customers must setup an account before purchasing online. Any information provided to you by DSU for your email account will NOT work.
