Empire State College Bookstore online is your place for official Empire State College textbooks. Financial Aid and 3rd Party accounts can only be used for course materials. Student ID number is required for textbook purchases in order to checkout. If you do not know your student ID number, you can check your registration confirmation or log in to MyESC at the top right of this page.
Due to the transition to new college-wide software, summer financial aid/grant/loan book orders will not be shipped out until Wednesday, April 11. Orders placed before that time will be held.
Due to technical difficulties, the SUNYEmpireGear website will be offline until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Beginning Fall 2017, orders can no longer be placed by phone. If you need assistance in placing your order online, you may call 800-847-3000 X2365.
eTextbook rentals through our new vendor RedShelf are available through the bookstore for some titles. Look for titles starting with "eTextbook". Please read the note attached to each title. Take notice that titles are only available for 180 day rentals. Also note that the refund policy is different for eTextbooks. eTextbooks can only be accessed by students in the US, and students on US military bases.
