Coming in Fall 2021 - Save Money With The Seahawk Book Bundle

Lamar State College Port Arthur is working hard to save you money! The Seahawk Book Bundle is a new textbook rental program that provides students with all required textbooks, manuals and access codes before the first day of class.

Only $25 a credit hour!

What's even better is this program is only $25 per credit hour, typically far less than purchasing textbooks, manuals and access codes online or in a store.
FALL 2021 DISCOUNT! There will be a $10 discount per credit hour for the Fall 2021 semester, which means that textbooks will cost $15 per credit hour instead.

Compare, then decide

Students are automatically enrolled in the Seahawk Book Bundle and given the option to easily compare prices of materials on the open market. Once you have compared the numbers, you can choose to opt out of the Seahawk Book Bundle if you want.

Step 1: Compare Prices

Please note: If the course indicates “no textbook is required” then the market price is $0 for course material. If you do not opt out of the Seahawk Book Bundle, then you will still be charged the book bundle fee per credit hour for the course.

Step 2: Confirm Your Order!

If you choose to opt out ...

The goal of the Seahawk Book Bundle is to provide discounted and guaranteed course material for the first day of class. We also realize this program may not meet the needs of every student. If you do not wish to participate in the Seahawk Book Bundle, you will need to opt-out every semester. The deadline to opt out is September 8, 2021. No adjustments will be made to the Seahawk Book Bundle charges on your account until after this date.
