Can I bill my books to my student account?
At this time, we will not be charging students account for their books. Tarleton State University will refund any excess financial aid that students have at least 10 days before the semester begins, so students can use those funds to purchase their textbooks. If you, or your student is not receiving financial aid, contact Business Services about a book loan.
Is shopping at the Texans Campus Store the best option?
The Texans Campus Store is a student’s one-stop-shop for everything they need for their classes each semester, making it the easy and affordable option for all students. We work with faculty members and textbook publishers to ensure that all materials are affordable and available to students.
How do I know which books to pick for my class?
Each professor has given the bookstore a list of books needed for his/her classes before the semester begins. Students can find their book lists online 30 days before the semester starts. Books that are necessary for a class are labeled "required". Professors will also offer additional books that enrich the students learning experience, and those books are labeled “recommended”, or “optional”.
Can I rent my books?
Certain titles will be available for rental each semester.
Rental books are ideal for students who want to save money
and do not wish to keep their books after the end of the semester.
At the end of the semester, rental books are due back in good condition. (Writing and highlighting is acceptable in moderation, and the books must have no missing/torn pages or water damage to be considered in good condition.) If a book is not returned at the end of the semester, the student will be charged for the cost of a replacement book as well as late fees.
