The Saps Supplies program at Millsaps College is a convenient way to provide all undergraduate students with their required books and course materials on day one—for no additional cost.

Saps Supplies delivers required texts and materials (e.g. studio art and lab supplies) to students based on their schedules, and the cost is included as part of tuition and course fees so there are no surprises about costs of materials after enrollment. Students will realize significant savings based on the Millsaps College Bookstore’s relationships with publishing partners as well as its bulk purchasing power. Saps Supplies also reduces student stress during the purchasing process and provides a method to easily access, manage and use all course materials regardless of format or cost.

  • Having required course materials at the start of the semester makes it easier to be more successful in class
  • Receive all course materials through a stress-free procurement experience
  • Easily access, manage and use digital course materials
  • Minimize the time spent searching for deals on course materials
  • Don’t worry about getting the wrong book or wrong edition

The Saps Supplies program takes the hassle out of course material buying because course material costs are covered as part of the cost of tuition. This allows every enrolled undergraduate student access to all required materials on day one. Once you have selected your courses, your course list will be sent to the Millsaps College Bookstore inside the College Center, and all your materials are pulled for you.

Yes! You will not pay out of pocket for your required course materials, as costs are covered.

Books may be print (i.e. physical copy) or digital and rent or purchase. Each instructor was given the opportunity to specify the format of their textbooks (digital or print). They were asked to be judicious with their requests and recognize that additional costs for print-only books will eventually be passed on to students and families in subsequent cycles.

Only materials identified by your professor or campus as “required” are included as part of the program. All “recommended” materials will be available for purchase at the Millsaps College Bookstore.

To know what materials are needed for all of your courses please visit enter your Student ID. This system will show you all course materials included in the program and the format of the materials.

Many of the books and materials are offered on a rental basis and must be turned back in at the conclusion of the term.  Remember, the idea behind Saps Supplies is to provide basic access to all required materials to all students at the most affordable price possible.  However, if students wish to purchase their books, they may do so through the bookstore and pay only the difference between the purchase and the rental price, since rental access is already included through Saps Supplies. Contact the bookstore manager via for more information.

If you drop a course, you must return any physical books/materials to the bookstore and your digital access will be removed for that course.   If you add a new course after you have already picked up your materials, go to the bookstore one day after enrollment to pick up additional course materials.

All digital books will be accessed using the BryteWave (RedShelf) Platform. There are 3 easy ways to access your course materials:

  • Course Connect
  • Your email: for digital books, students will receive an email from BryteWave to their Millsaps beginning January 2, 2022, instructing them how to access their book online.
  • The BryteWave website

If you have any questions on how to access digital books, email or call 601.974.1230.

Students will receive an email to their Millsaps account when their physical books and materials are ready to pick up in our bookstore. Beginning on January 5, the bookstore will be open Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–4 p.m., for Saps Supplies pickup. Students can pick up their books and supplies once they arrive on campus.

Students are responsible for returning all rental books and course materials to the Millsaps College Bookstore by the scheduled due date. Failure to return books and course materials by the due date or returning damaged items will result in a fine charged to your student account.

If you have any questions related to pick up, accessing your Saps Supplies or need an accommodation, or call 601.974.1230.
