You cannot pick up your rental or buy books without a recently PRINTED class schedule, which must include your name and ID#; electronic forms of your schedule (via your phone, tablets, or computers) CANNOT be used.  This applies too if you are picking your books up at Sikeston, Dexter, and Kennett.  There are NEVER any exceptions to this policy for any reason, regardless if you are picking up one book or all of your books, regardless if it is the beginning of the semester, or your only needing one book during the semester.  


2.    Raider OneCard, or School ID, or Driver’s License.  We recommend you bring your Raider OneCard over another form of ID, because the new cards have a barcode on the back that we can scan, which speeds the checkout process for you, verifies your financial aid, but we will accept other forms of ID.  


3.    Your form of payment.  Approved Financial Aid; Just because you have financial aid it does not mean you have enough financial aid.  You must know how much financial aid you will be receiving then subtract what you owe the College for tuition, fees, and past balances; the amount remaining is what you have available to spend in The College Store.  We also accept Visa/MasterCard, Cash, Check)      

Our book pick-up area is all self-server, but we do have people that will show you how to find your books. If you are taking classes that have rental books, you have already been charged a $40.00 rental fee per class at the time of registration.  Rental fees are mandatory and non-refundable.
