Academic Resources

Bearkat Bundle

Now you can get all your books in one bundle! Our new Bearkat Bundle program is an all-encompassing, affordable way to rent all your textbooks, lab manuals, access codes, and electronic books before the first day of class. The average student is estimated to save $150-200 on textbooks for a semester. All undergraduate students will be automatically enrolled.

Student Advising and Mentoring Center (SAM Center)

The SAM Center provides academic advising services to help you develop and implement an appropriate academic plan. Academic advisors are available to provide guidance, connect you to resources, and help you make a successful transition to SHSU.

Academic Success Center

The Academic Success Center is a premier student support center with the goal of providing indispensable success resources for every Bearkat. We meet students where they are in the learning process and empower them to achieve academic success.

Newton Gresham Library (NGL)

The NGL is more than the standard image one might imagine. SHSU’s Library has welcoming architecture and large floor-length windows to bring in natural light. With individual study desks and study rooms for two-person and larger group study, the library is the place on campus for quiet, focused study time.
