Ordering Books and Supplies

You may be entitled to purchase items at the Bookstore as part of your Chapter 31 benefits. Please check with your counselor regarding what you may be eligible to purchase (for example, VA Vocational students may only purchase required textbooks with benefit funds), and to make sure your name has been turned in to the bookstore as being eligible for Chapter 31 benefits.

To purchase your books and supplies, simply visit the UCCS Bookstore at your convenience and select your items and proceed to the cashier. All associates are trained to process 3rd party payments. For your convenience, here is a link to the UCCS Bookstore where you can view the hours of operation.

As a special service to you, if the 3rd party accounts have not yet been set-up or sent to the bookstore, you may still select your textbooks and supplies, and the bookstore will hold them for you in the Text Office until the funds are available. Also, if there are any items you need that are not carried in the bookstore, please see Sharon Coddington (, 719-255-3250) about the possibility of a special order.

Here are some tips to help with your shopping experience:

     1) Bring your class schedule to determine what books you need

     2) Make sure your name has been submitted to the bookstore by contacting your counselor

     3) Bring your ink order, if you need ink (see below)

     4) Please note that Third Party/Special Account users are not allowed to rent textbooks

     5) Currently, Third Party/Special Account users are not able to order on-line; all purchases must be made in the bookstore

Ordering Printer Ink

Printer ink is ordered every two weeks, starting two weeks before the term begins. An order form is available HERE. Please print and complete the order form, and place it in the "Ink Order Drop Box" located in the Text Office area in the back of the Bookstore. Your ink will be ordered accordingly and you will be notified when it is ready to be picked up. The UCCS Bookstore is here to serve you, and the Bookstore team looks forward to providing you with a great experience!  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the UCCS Bookstore staff at 719-255-3247.
