THE STATE SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS, SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND CHARTER SCHOOLS WILL ONLY PAY FOR REQUIRED TEXTBOOKS.

Go to the USF Bookstore website
- Input your University ID Number in the section labeled “Shop by Student ID”
- On the next page, select the appropriate campus and term
- Look up the required materials for each of your courses
- Unless noted by the professor, USF allows you to select any new or used book (digital or hard copy); however, school districts may stipulate preferred options. Please check with your school counselor to see whether school/district has instructions pertaining to the types of books you should purchase or rent.
- Professors sometimes list “suggested” or “recommended” materials; however schools/ districts only pay for required course materials, and students will be billed for the purchase of anything that is not listed as “required.”
- Once you have selected all required materials for all of your classes, you should continue to the Order Summary screen.
- At Order Summary, review your order and follow the prompts to checkout.
- You may request home delivery for materials ordered online, but to do so you must pay the delivery charges when you place the order. Books can be picked up at a USF bookstore free-of-charge.
- You will have money assigned to your account to cover the costs of your books and materials. If after you re-enter your University ID during checkout, you find that you are still being prompted to pay, it means that you have exceeded the expected cost of your required texts. Please email both the Bookstore managers (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org) for prompt assistance in expanding this allowance as needed.
