Texts for Vets Info

The Texts for Vets Program was created to assist APSU students overcome the financial burden of purchasing textbooks. The textbooks we provide our students are donated from the APSU community, which are distributed to the students through our center in room 120 in the Morgan University Center (located behind the Post Office). Due to the current amount of textbooks, we distribute them out based on a first-come first-served basis. The first weeks of distribution is designated for veterans, active duty, reservist, national guardsmen, retirees, ROTC students, and family members. Once the semester starts is open to all APSU students. During the last week of the term the students return the book to the center to be signed out by another student the following semester. If you have any textbooks that you no longer use please think of helping out your fellow students by donating those textbooks to the MSC.

Please remember this program is funded completely by donations, so if you are able to donate please do!
