The Philander Smith College Bookstore is located on the first floor of the Myer Titus Academic Center, Suite 122. The hours of operation are 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The store is open to the general public and maintains a variety of general reading material with an emphasis on African American authors. The bookstore is also an excellent source for snacks, greeting cards, school apparel, supplies, and study aids. Stamps and envelopes can also be purchased at the checkout counter. Visa, Mastercard, and American Express are all accepted.
In helping students to succeed and graduate, the College offers a convenient Textbook Rental Program to all students enrolled. Through this service, textbooks are loaned to the student for a flat charge of $100.00 per semester. This semester fee covers all books required based on registered courses. Books obtained through the textbook rental program must be returned at the completion of the semester.
Textbooks can also be purchased outright with a check, credit or debit card, cash or book voucher. A book voucher is only available to those students who have excess financial aid through the Book Voucher Program. To obtain a book voucher, please contact the Business Office.
Philander Smith College's mail distribution center is housed in the Student Union Center. All first-class mail is sorted in the mail room and dropped in the student’s assigned mail box. Incoming packages from FedEx, UPS, Airborne, and DHL are received in the Campus Bookstore, and staged for pick-up. A notice is left in the student’s mail box. The student’s I.D. and signature are required before the package can be released.
