CSB/SJU Students -How to Order Textbooks

Textbooks for spring semester will be available December 20.

Buy your textbooks in the Bookstores:

We stock all the books for your classes! Come in to the Bookstore on the campus where your class is held. Bring your class schedule, and our staff will help you find everything you need. If you live close, this is a great option! You can pick used books without much highlighting, get all your other school supplies and have all your questions answered by our staff. You can also purchase your books when you arrive on move-in day or from our website.

Purchase books from our online Bookstores:

Our stock of textbooks is the same online as in the store. When you order, we pull all your books and bag them up! Choose “pick up” at your preferred campus at checkout and your textbooks will be waiting for you at the Bookstore when you arrive on campus.

1. Log into your Banner Account and find your class schedule.

2. Click on the links below your schedule: CSB Bookstore for classes on CSB campus, SJU Bookstore for classes on SJU campus. You will need to click both links if you have classes on both campuses.

3. Choose which textbook option you want. There are several options, so know what you need!  Not all options are available for each title.

    New Textbook—Some books are only available in new condition because they contain access codes, they are newly published, or lack of used book supply.

    Used Textbook—Save at least 25% or more off the new price. This option is not available for all titles.

    Rental—Pay a fee to use a textbook for the semester and return it in good condition to the Bookstore by the due date. May rent new or used textbooks. Save up to 60% off the new book price. Please read our Rental Agreement.

     E-Book—Textbooks available in digital format. If an e-book is available, you can choose the e-book or the print version —you don’t need both.

4. Review and complete your purchase.

Please note: You will need to create an account for each Bookstore. You can use the same email and password.

Buy books once classes start:

No need to order online when you are on campus! Come in to the Bookstore on the campus where your class is held. We have all the books in the store; this is the quickest way to purchase when you are on campus.

Charge books to your tuition account:

Use your student ID to charge books and supplies to your tuition account at the beginning of each semester. Fall dates: August 1—September 10.   Spring dates:  December 10 - Feb. 10
