Carthage College Campus Store: Slingshot logo Carthage College is proud to partner with Slingshot as the College’s textbook and campus bookstore provider. This partnership provides many exciting benefits to Firebirds everywhere, including new spirit wear options, pop-up shops, exciting brands, and more.

Most importantly, Carthage’s partnership with Slingshot allows Carthage students to get their textbooks and other materials for their Carthage classes for a predictable price.

The Equitable Access Program allows all full-time Carthage undergraduate students to pay a flat fee of $182 per semester to receive all required textbooks and course materials. All students — new and returning — will pick up their materials at the Clausen Center when they arrive on campus as part of check-in.

Carthage’s new Equitable Access Program is open to all full-time undergraduate students regardless of major, format of materials, or financial aid status.

All of your course materials — at an affordable price!

Equitable Access is like a Netflix subscription: Students receive all their materials for one low, predictable fee — regardless of financial aid status, academic program, learning format, or how much is required. These materials will be provided in the lowest cost format as a mix of physical and digital items, or students can choose a print upgrade option to secure only physical materials for a small additional fee.
