Contact the Bookstore directly. The Library does not handle textbook purchases for students.

From the SCSU Bookstore:

Confused about how to buy your books this semester? We can help with that! 

How do I buy my books this semester?

We encourage you to order your books online as soon as possible through Southern-ct.bncollege.com. Like last semester, all online orders will be shipped (there is no in-store pick up option for online orders) to aid with social distancing. Pro-tip: this is your best option!

 

Can I buy my books in person?

While the Bookstore will be open for in-person purchases, access will be extremely limited. Additionally, we will have a strict limit of no more than 40 customers at a time.  Due to the delay of in-person instruction, we are adjusting our hours accordingly. We will be open as follows:

Can I use my financial aid to buy my books?

Yes! You will need to transfer excess financial aid to your Hoot Loot card 24-hours before placing you​r order online (or coming into the Bookstore). You can do this on the Hoot Loot website. When checking out on the website, Select “Hoot Loot" as your method of payment.

 

DCF/VA/Dept of Labor, etc. pays for my books. Can I order online and have them shipped to me?

Yes! At c​heckout, select "Bookstore Account" as your method of payment. This button should only be used for students that usually ask for a manager to ring them up when they come into the store. If you are using leftover loan money, you should select “Hoot Loot".

 

Thank you for your patience while we do our best to get through another COVID-19 semester.
