Textbook affordability

 

In addition to finding ways to save you money, the Bookstore is here to make sure you receive the right course materials to help you succeed at Columbus State. That can’t always be said of our online competitors. If you buy it from us, you can be assured to have the correct material for your class. We offer top notch customer service!

Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus is released at no cost to all Columbus State students!

See more information and setup instructions for Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus.

Used Books

The Columbus State Bookstore orders used books through multiple wholesalers, trying to stock as many used books as we possibly can. Supply can be limited for newer titles, but if it’s out there as a used book, we are going to do our best to get it for you. Used books are typically priced 25% - 30% lower than their new book counterparts.This helps to pass savings along to our customers! You can’t go wrong with used books, and coupled with our competitive buyback program (which offers a rate based on new book prices) you are sure to save big!

Used Calculators

The calculator buyback program is an effort to help students reduce their overall education costs, as it allows the Bookstore to offer students used calculators at a discounted rate when available.
