What You Need, When You Need It

The University has partnered with Follett Higher Education Group to operate the UWF Bookstore and satellite store at Fort Walton Beach. Contract management and oversight is the responsibility of Business Services. Follett has been in business for 140 years and manages more than 930 bookstores nationwide.

The official UWF BookstoreWe stock the largest selection of textbooks, course materials, and Argonaut emblematic gear in Pensacola. Our primary purpose is making sure students have the required and/or recommended texts and course materials as specified by their professor. Books can be purchased new, used. or rented for the semester.

Order online or in person. UWF’s online registration system connects directly to the UWF Bookstore, allowing students to purchase or rent textbooks online immediately after registering for classes. The order can be shipped to the student's home or held at the store for pick up. Students in the state of Florida with a valid Student ID will not be charged sales tax for required or recommended course materials. Read the Sales Tax Exemption Info‌ (pdf) for details.

Bookstore Deferment Program: If a student is receiving financial aid and has excess funds (after tuition and fees are paid), the Bookstore Deferment Program will allow the purchase of textbooks up to $800 before aid is disbursed. Students will receive notification, sent to their UWF email address, from the UWF Financial Services department if they have excess financial aid funds that may be used. Students simply select their course materials then sign the bookstore receipt. This authorizes UWF to deduct the Bookstore charges from your financial aid and/or scholarship award. (If financial aid status changes, the student is responsible for purchases made under this program.)
