Course Materials

  • Undergraduate students: Course material and textbook information posted by faculty is visible in Bennington College's academic information system, Populi—just click on the name of the course in your schedule, and make sure you're on the "Info" tab. Students are encouraged to review these pages well before the beginning of term, and to order all required course materials from a vendor of their choosing, before the term begins. Although a limited number of books will be available for each class in the on-campus bookstore, these are primarily intended to facilitate the add/drop process. 
  • Required supplies are also listed on the course page in Populi. Course supplies and kits will be in stock and available for purchase in the on-campus bookstore at the beginning of term.
  • Postbac premed students will receive ordering information directly from the program’s director.
