Rental Return Information:

´╗┐Due to the circumstances of the outbreak of the COVID-19 and the campus being closed until further notice, the bookstore manager has extended your due date of spring 2020 rental returns until May 29th.  The manager has secured a FEDEX Fulfillment link on the bookstore website which will enable the students to print off a prepaid shipping label to send back rental book/books to the bookstore.  The manager wants this to be as easy on the students as possible with  the bookstore picking up the shipping cost.



Make sure you have your student id # that begins with the alphabet as it's required to create the label.


Please see listed below all our bookstore information regarding textbook purchases/rentals and graduation regalia purchasing.

When placing ONLINE TEXTBOOK ORDERS, please use your USC ID as your username (Example- J12345678) when creating your account for the USC Sumter Bookstore.

The bookstore will be closed March 16 until further notice. We will have our online website available to purchase or rent your textbooks. We will only be offering for your books to be shipped to you if an ebook is not available.  Due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus outbreak we feel it is in the best interest of our customers and employees to only offer online services to our students to acquire their textbooks for Summer and Fall courses. Some of our textbooks are offered as ebooks and when that order is processed you will receive the code via email from our store.  The university as a whole has closed and no one is allowed on campus. We appreciate your patience at this time. If the closure and this option is extended we will be sure to make this information available.  We hope that you and your family stay well and safe.If you have any questions regarding your textbooks please contact the bookstore manager Julie McCoy via email. 



You will be able to place your orders online at Balfour.Com for your announcement and ring needs.  All caps, gown, tassels and honor cords can be purchased at any time right up until commencement from the bookstore. We will be advising as we get information as it becomes available. AT THIS TIME YOU CAN ONLY ORDER AND HAVE YOUR  CAP,GOWN,TASSEL OR HONOR CORD SHIPPED TO YOU. Please specify what degree you are receiving as this determines the color of your tassel.
