Online Bookstore Information

Ranken will no longer sell textbooks on campus. We have partnered with MBS Direct to develop an online bookstore.

Through MBS Direct, Ranken students will be able to purchase new or used textbooks at a more competitive price. In some cases, book rental, eBook, and eBook rental may also be an option.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about book buyback? MBS Direct has a book buyback program. Please see their website for full details.

What about tools and other supplies?  Tools and supplies will still be sold in the on-campus bookstore.

How do I use financial aid when purchasing textbooks online? Once you are approved by Ranken’s financial aid department, the business office will notify MBS that you are authorized to make textbook purchases using financial aid. MBS will send an email to your student email account which will include your ID and password for their website. You will need this ID and password to purchase textbooks using financial aid, so be sure to check your student email account.
