In some cases, you may be able to purchase or rent books from online vendors that are cheaper than the books in the bookstore.
Make sure you consider the costs of shipping and the condition of the book when comparing book prices. When you order books online, you will need to follow up with the company or individual you order from if there are problems with your order. The following websites are independent businesses and are not endorsed by the college.
**** When you're comparing prices, keep in mind that the college bookstore may offer to match the purchase or rental price of a new book. More information can be found on the bookstore's price match guarantee page.
The College provides an online discussion board where students can post books to sell. You can look for books to buy by subject area.
To get there:
1. Log into MyCState
2. Click on "College Community"
3. Find the "Books for Sale/Swap" link in the Institution Discussion Board box.
