The Follett Bookstore is your one-stop shop for all required course materials and textbooks, while offering a variety of Cincinnati State t-shirts, spirit wear, gifts, supplies and more. Please bring your class schedule with you so we are sure to get exactly what you need for your course.
Integrated Course Materials:
As part of Cincinnati State’s cost-saving initiatives, many classes are part of a program called “Follett ACCESS,” where the cost of course materials are included as a course fee, rather than purchased in the bookstore or online. These course materials are delivered digitally to your course in Blackboard prior to the start of class, at a greatly reduced cost to students over traditional textbooks, allowing everyone to have what they need on Day 1. Digital products may also include access to assignment managers for homework, tests and quizzes as requested by your instructors. There is an option to “opt out” of the program but doing so means you are responsible for obtaining the required eBooks and/or courseware on your own, at your own expense. Please contact the Bookstore Manager for additional information if you have questions about the ACCESS program.
You can visit the Clifton Bookstore in person, Monday through Friday, on the Clifton Campus, in Room 134 of the ATLC Building. You can also shop for apparel or books online, 24/7 at cincystshop.com. The bookstore accepts credit cards, gift cards, Apple Pay, and *Financial Aid as payment both online and in-store.
A small campus store is located on the Middletown Campus, and will be open at the start and end of each semester. This location carries only required items for classes taught in Middletown. Please call ahead for hours and availability. For your convenience, online orders may be picked up at the Middletown Campus for no additional charge, but please allow an additional 24-48 hours for Middletown pick-up, as all orders fill and ship from Clifton.
*Financial Aid accepted during specific dates and on course related items only.
Online Orders for Middletown:
Online orders filled by the Clifton bookstore can be picked up in Middletown with no additional charge. For this option, please allow an extra 2 days of delivery time.
