CSB/SJU Students -How to Order Textbooks

Textbooks for fall semester will be available August 4, 2020

Changes to buying textbooks through the CSB/SJU Bookstores:

We are making changes to how you purchase your textbooks.  Your textbook purchases from CSB/SJU Bookstores must be done through our website. We will have all textbooks for all four blocks available to purchase in August.  All textbooks will be located on the SJU Bookstore website (and will be located inside the SJU Bookstore only).  You will only need to place ONE order now!  We will be offering FREE shipping, and we are strongly encouraging you to have all your textbooks shipped to your home.  Due to occupancy restrictions, we will not be able to have all students pick up their books in the stores.  If shipping isn't possible, you can select to pick them up at either Bookstore location.

How to purchase books from our online Bookstore:

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

2. Click on the link below your schedule: ORDER MY TEXTBOOKS. You will no longer need to order from both Bookstores, as we have moved ALL books to the SJU location.

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 (Dec. 21, 2020).  Please return any rentals you are done with as your block ends.  You 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.  Don't forget to order your CSB/SJU Academic Planner or other items at the same time!  Please select FREE SHIPPING if possible. 

Please create an account for the SJU Bookstore website. If you have ordered anything from the SJU Bookstore in the past then you may already have an account.  If you create an account you will be able to log back in and see your order history.  If you use guest checkout you will NOT see your order history.  If you have only ordered from the CSB Bookstore website in the past, you will need to create a new account on the SJU Bookstore website.    

Buy books once classes start:

You will still be required to purchase your books through our website.  We will not have our textbook deaprtment open to walk in traffic. 

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.
