The SUNY Empire Bookstore will be closing for the Summer 2020 term on Monday, June 15.  Please obtain any course materials you might need before that time. 

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 COVID 19 and the limited staff that is allowed into the bookstore, book orders will be shipped out on TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS only at this time.     In person pickup of course materials is not available at this time.  Sorry for any inconvience.

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 some titles are only available for 150 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.
