JSU V.I.B.E. TEXTBOOK PROGRAM

JSU V.I.B.E (Virtual, Interactive Technology, Books, and Educational Supplies) is a partnership between JSU and the JSU Campus Store that allows students to rent or purchase textbooks at a reduced cost. The charge is posted directly to the student’s JSU Bursar account along with tuition and fees (University fees). It can be paid along with their University charges using financial aid or methods of payment.

Save money

We’ve discovered a better way for JSU students to succeed from the very first day of class and save money. With digital textbooks and materials through JSU V.I.B.E, students get instant access, lighter backpacks, and an average saving of 62% or more over printed books.

What is the JSU V.I.B.E textbook program?

JSU V.I.B.E. is a partnership between JSU and the JSU Campus Store that allows students to rent or purchase textbooks at a reduced cost.

What is the benefit of participating in the program?

This program aims to improve the overall success of the student’s in the classroom here at JSU. This program will ensure that all students have the required course materials needed to succeed on day one.

Studies show that students who don’t have their required course materials on the first day of class may be disadvantaged. We are offering this program to all students to ensure that all scholars are afforded this great opportunity.

What will the charge look like on my JSU bill?

A charge will appear on your student account for the JSU Campus Store – JSU V.I.B.E. The charge will appear under the description of your bill. You can pay through your JSU P.A.W.S. account or allow it to be covered by your financial aid if your award is enough when it disperses.

What happens if I drop a course?

Once a course has been dropped, the digital e-book access will be removed. If the student picked up a physical book, it would need to be returned to the Campus Store by the add/drop date to avoid being charged extra fees for failure to return.

How do I purchase materials from the JSU Campus Store if I’ve opted out?

Students that have opted out of the JSU V.I.B.E program can still purchase their required COURSE material from the Campus Store. We understand that students who opt out may still need to use their financial aid or scholarship awards in the Campus Store. Please note, many of our items are custom priced for JSU V.I.B.E from publishers and will be a different price than what is listed on the Campus Store’s website. Some items –like physical books — are readily available at the Campus Store. Like courseware products (for example, McGraw Connect and Pearson Mylab), others may have to be specially ordered. If you would like to purchase your materials from the Campus Store through the JSU V.I.B.E program, we ask that you please contact the Campus Store. This will ensure that the course material is received promptly, even special-order items. We will work diligently to ensure that all needed course material is received, even if you cannot pick them up at the store.
