Ordering for fall orders is now open for out of pocket payments including

credit and debit cards as well as all forms of student financial aid.


Please order online and wait until you have received

the 2nd email confirming that your order is ready for pickup before

coming to pickup your order.


Processing of Financial Aid will begin on Aug. 10.


The store is now open in a very limited capacity with social distancing standards, 

where face coverings must be used and a limited number of customers

are allowed in the store at one time.


We encourage all students to place orders online first, then come in to pick up your order

after you have received the 2nd notification email notifying you that it's ready, or choose

to have your order shipped to one of our regional centers at no charge. 

This will save you a lot of time.


Call us at 217-786-2300 or email us at with any questions. 


Please remember that our summer hours are Monday through Thursday from 8am until 5pm. 

We are closed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in summer, ending Aug. 9.
