OFFICE OF THE BURSAR  

New Service: HSSU Bookstore Offers Summer Textbook Rental in 2017

HSSU Bookstore

HSSU Bookstore provides HSSU undergraduate students with a textbook rental program – an economical alternative to purchasing most textbooks.  At many colleges and universities, students must purchase costly textbooks each semester.  HSSU takes pride in helping students save money by offering a rental option.  No matter how many books you need for a class, the rental fee stays the same.  The Summer 2017 rental fee is $25 per credit hour.  This fee is included in your student fees, so you do not need to bring money to get your books.  Textbooks may be rented or returned throughout the semester during normal business hours. At the end of each semester, textbooks must be returned to HSSU Bookstore.

How do you get our books?

All students need to have a HSSU Student ID and class schedule to pick up their books.  Privacy laws require that the student, and no one else, pick his or her books

Where is the HSSU Bookstore?

HSSU Bookstore is at Gillespie Hall 3025 Laclede Avenue Room 105.
