This summer, Lake-Sumter State College will be transitioning Campus Bookstore providers from Follett to Akademos. We believe that Akademos will offer a wider selection of textbooks, course materials, and other academic resources. Our current bookstore vendors will close their operations on Tuesday, May 21.

We will continue to provide updates on this transition on this page and by email and text message to enrolled students.

Summer B Students

Books and course materials for Summer B courses are available in this spreadsheet.

You can search by CRN, Course Number, or Instructor. The Author, Title, ISBN, Publisher, and Edition are listed. As you search for the book, you must ensure these items match the book you purchase, or the content may not align with the course content.

To purchase books, please visit VitalSource to search by ISBN and purchase your books.

Please contact your instructor or the Enrollment Service Center with any questions. 

Dual Enrollment Textbooks

Textbook approval process
Once your Dual Enrollment classes have been approved by your High School Counselor and the LSSC staff you will receive an email directing you to pick up your textbooks.

Changes to your schedule
If you decide to make a change to your schedule, you are required to do so via your myLSSC account and repeat the process by visiting your HS counselor and getting your courses approved electronically by the posted fee payment deadline. Once your new class is approved by your HS counselor and LSSC, you will receive a new email notifying you that your textbooks are ready to be picked up.

The following is an outline of the pick-up process based on which category of Dual Enrollment you are in:
