Order Your Books

In order to provide you with the most convenient and cost-effective solutions for your student’s textbooks, we have partnered with MBS Direct as our official Virtual Bookstore for the 2015-2016 academic year.
We work closely with MBS Direct so that they have the correct textbooks and materials for your student’s courses.  Each textbook you order, whether print or eBook, will be the exact version required by your student’s teacher and will be delivered on time. You can purchase all of your books in one place and MBS accepts multiple forms of payment including credit cards and PayPal. Further, you can purchase used books at reduced prices, and there’s a guaranteed buyback with upfront quotes at the time of purchase.
The virtual bookstore will open on Aug. 10, 2015, and can be found at bookstore.mbsdirect.net/cushing.htm. You will need your student’s course schedule in order to purchase books. Schedules will be available to view in your MyCushing account. (Please note that new international students will take part in placement testing upon arrival in September. Their schedules will be created once the testing is complete and they may purchase books in our bookstore at that time.)
From Aug. 10 through Aug. 23, MBS Direct will offer free shipping for any orders over $99.  You can choose to have your books sent to your home, but we encourage you to have them delivered to Cushing and your student can pick them up at the bookstore when they arrive on campus. All orders made before Aug. 23 are guaranteed to be delivered prior to the beginning of classes. After Aug. 23, during checkout, you can pick shipping options that will indicate the estimated arrival date.
You must order your books prior to the beginning of school based on your student’s current course schedule. A limited number of additional books will be on hand to accommodate course schedule changes during our add/drop period. If your student's course schedule changes, you may also return unneeded books during the add/drop period.
