Instructions for purchasing books

St. Scholastica Virtual Bookstore - ecampus.com/css

Ecampus is the official bookstore of The College of St. Scholastica. This virtual bookstore offers:

  • A large selection of used, rental and marketplace textbooks
  • Multiple payment options (credit card, check/money order, or charge to your school account using Bookstore Dollars)
  • Free UPS Ground Shipping on all orders over $150
  • Options to sell books back

Students may purchase books from the vendor of their choice and are not required to use the ecampus store.  However, students wishing to use financial aid money toward the cost of books must purchase them through the official St. Scholastica virtual bookstore using Bookstore Dollars. (Note: Students must have enough financial aid funding available to cover the cost of books).

Bookstore Dollars allow students to charge up to $600 to their St. Scholastica student account for textbook purchases. A $600 credit limit is added to students' ecampus account each semester. If you choose to use these virtual bookstore dollars, the amount used will be charged to your St. Scholastica student account upon checkout. Students are not required to use bookstore dollars. To pay by another means such as credit card or debit card, simply click the undo button at checkout and select another payment option.
