South Arkansas College Announces New Online Bookstore Partnership With eCampus.com Beginning Summer 2023
South Arkansas College has announced that eCampus.com will be its official online bookstore beginning with this summer’s terms.
eCampus.com will provide SouthArk a school-branded online storefront where students and faculty will have access to a large selection of course materials. With a variety of purchasing options and media including digital, new, used, and rental textbooks, as well as marketplace options, students will have the flexibility to shop according to their unique needs and budgets.
“eCampus.com is dedicated to providing students with an affordable and easily accessible shopping experience when the time comes to purchase course materials,” said Matt Mongomery, President and CEO of eCampus.com. “Working with South Arkansas College, we will extend these benefits to their campuses.”
Additionally, eCampus.com has taken steps to make its online bookstore platform more accessible to SouthArk students by setting up a kiosk for student ordering needs available on campus. This will give students convenient access to their online bookstore, ordering history, and order status; and they can place orders or contact eCampus.com’s dedicated customer service should they have any questions.
With the advanced features available to the online bookstore, eCampus.com is able to streamline the process of researching course materials as well as the adoption process. Through the online bookstore, faculty and staff will have access to a platform that will allow academic freedom and assist in making informed course content choices by providing administrators the ability to review student purchasing behavior. Through these advanced features on the online bookstore platform, administrators can make choices intended to assist in setting SouthArk students up for success.
“When we began exploring new ways to enhance our student experience, eCampus.com stood out among its competitors. We demanded a new online shopping and checkout process that is as easy as shopping and buying on Amazon,” said Michael Armstrong, SouthArk Vice President for Finance and Administration. “eCampus.com met our demand and much more. Students can access a variety of payment options at checkout and receive their custom orders in as little as two business days at their home or our onsite store. The wide variety of books and course materials will allow our faculty to imagine new ways to teach. Their integration capabilities with Jenzabar and our financial aid software will allow for the seamless flow of information. We are excited about what our partnership with eCampus.com will bring to our faculty, students, and staff.”
