Bookstore Purchases



Shorter University will allow textbooks and course materials purchased at our University Bookstore to be charged to your Shorter Student account using your Student ID for all students (Traditional, Online, and CAPP). If you choose to use this method for purchasing your books, be aware that by doing so you are authorizing Shorter University to deduct all bookstore charges from any funds posted on your student account, including Title IV financial aid. In the event you do not receive enough funds to cover the balance due, you are responsible to pay these charges in full or a hold will be placed on your account.

This service has been made available to you as an alternative to waiting for financial aid funds to post to your account before obtaining your textbooks and course materials. You are not required to use this service.

How to use this service:
Purchases can be made at the Main Campus Bookstore in Rome, GA or ordered at our Online Bookstore.  If ordered online, you can designate the order for pickup in the Main Campus Bookstore or for shipment to your home address.

Our online Bookstore can be accessed by clicking on Campus Life on our home page at  and then selecting Bookstore. Or click this link to go directly to the Online Bookstore.

From there, click the Books menu and select “Textbook and Course Materials.”  Then select your program of study and the course you are taking for which you need books using dropdown boxes. Select the items you wish to purchase. (Remember, you can only charge textbooks and course materials to your student accounT).

When you have completed your order, you can choose to use a personal credit card or use your Shorter ID to charge the purchases to your Shorter University student account. If charging to your Shorter University student account, select Financial Aid as your method of payment and when prompted, enter your Shorter ID number.
