SSC Bookstore is now a Follett Campus Bookstore

Follett Higher Education has been selected as South Suburban College’s campus retail partner, effective 7/6/21. With more than 140 years of experience in higher education, Follett’s partnership brings new resources, innovative technology, and enhanced product assortments. We’re ready to put our insight and knowledge to work for the entire campus community.

New Location

The SSC Bookstore has moved from the Atrium to the first floor of the Library. You can purchase clothing, supplies, SSC branded merchandise as well as physical textbooks available for Inclusive Access courses at a discounted prices in the on-site bookstore. However, these books DO NOT COME WITH THE ONLINE ACCESS that is required for the course. It is highly recommended that you only purchase a physical text if it is your preferred method for reading/studying.
