Textbook Information

  • All textbooks (no matter which campus your class is on) will be at the St. John’s Bookstore. This allows just ONE LINK from your student detail schedule to your entire book list. It means just ONE LOGIN and ONE CHECKOUT.
  • Due to social distancing and capacity restrictions within our stores, all textbook purchases through our bookstore must be made online.
  • We encourage you to order your books for all your classes at the beginning of the semester. This will ensure you have all your course materials should you need to quarantine or go home.
  • Keep your receipt. If your professor changes their required book list, we will work with you to return unneeded books confirmed by your Professor. Textbooks returns can be done at both the CSB and SJU Bookstore.
  • Return your rented books when you are done using them. You can return them to the CSB or SJU Bookstore. This will help make sure you don’t accrue any additional charges at the end of the semester. We will send out a book rental reminder that list the books you rented at the end of every block.
  • Do not open new textbooks, packages or access code cards until the block they will be used in.
  • More classes are using our Direct Access program.  This program allows you to access your digital textbook and other digital content on the Canvas page for your course.  You have the option to “opt out” of the program if you choose to not get your textbook in this manner.  After the third day of the block, your student account will be charged for the content.  You will receive emails approximately one week before the class begins with information on how to access the content.
  • We’ve updated our textbook refund policy for the Block schedule.
  • Look the for course notes on your book list for each of your classes, this is found above each course.
  • We have expanded our eBook collection, so you may have access to a completely digital version of your textbooks. When looking at your book list, you do not need to order both the eBook and hardcopy of the book- only choose 1 version to order.
