The Military Student Center is helping cut the rising prices of college life by distributing textbooks to struggling APSU students with the Texts for Vets Program.

The textbooks will be available in the Military Student Center from Jan. 19 to March 15. The program offers books for a variety of courses, including history, literature and science. These texts have been donated by APSU students and the program requires that they be returned at the end of the semester for others to use in the future.

Texts are currently given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students must fill out an online form for each textbook they need. Once their form has been processed and they have been contacted by Texts for Vets, the student will have 48 hours to pick up their textbook from Morgan University Center room 120 with their A number and student ID. If a student drops a class, they are expected to return the related textbook immediately.

A week before the program opened up to the rest of the campus, groups such as veteran students, students on active duty, retirees, ROTC students and family members were given priority in checking out texts.

Book donations will be accepted on May 7, 2016, in the MUC Lobby when the Military Student Center holds its book drive.
