We define excellence by our commitment to customer service. We understand that college is an expense, which can become a burden to both students and their parents. We feel that by keeping the cost low on textbooks that more students will be able to better afford to continue their education.

The TSJC Bookstore is proud to offer a rental program. All rental books are for the duration of the current semester. Rentals offer students another option to save money on their textbook costs by providing immediate upfront savings. Students who rent books are required to have a debit/credit card placed on file in the event there is a problem with the return.
