The Philander Smith College Bookstore is located on the first floor of the Myer Titus Academic Center, Suite 122. The hours of operation are 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. We are open to the general public. The store maintains a variety of general reading material with an emphasis on African American authors. The bookstore is also an excellent source for snacks, greeting cards, school apparel, supplies, and study aids. Stamps and envelopes can also be purchased at the checkout counter. We accept Visa, Master Card, and American Express for payment. Textbooks are stocked and sold only during the beginning of each semester.
Philander Smith College has a convenient and unique partnership with a local textbook retailer. Textbook Brokers is our official campus source for textbooks. Books can be purchased with a check, credit card, cash or the flexible payment option. The flexible payment option allows students who are approved for financial aid to charge books against an anticipated refund. If the student meets the requirements, a book voucher will be issued by the Business Office.
Textbook Brokers will have books available for two to three weeks beginning with the first day of class. Students will need to provide the vendor with the book voucher and a copy of their schedule. Returns and exchanges need to be transacted two weeks from the first day of class. The contact information is as follows:
