It is the student's responsibility to assist in the selection of textbooks by bringing a current class schedule to the bookstore, along with a current student ID. Students should keep their bookstore receipt until the end of the semester or until the bookstore repurchases the books. Receipts must accompany any returned book even when purchased on a scholarship.
ABSOLUTLEY NO REFUNDS/RETURNS WITHOUT SALES RECIEPT!!!
The following schedule applies to all students.
Textbook refunds will follow the guidelines for tuition and fee refunds so long as the book(s) are in their original condition. (i.e., 100% tuition and fees refund is 100% textbook refund). Refund dates will correspond to the last day noted to drop with a refund in the course schedule for each semester. (i.e., Spring 2022 Class Schedule: Last Day to Drop 16-week Course with Refund is Wednesday, January 19, 2022) See Class Schedule Catalogs for specific term dates. ALL returns must have a receipt. Under certain circumstances it may be necessary for a student to return a textbook before or after classes begin. Normally these circumstances would result from either a student’s total withdrawal from college, dropping a class, or by the college canceling a class. Students should be aware of the following guidelines when requesting a refund for textbooks:
- A completed “Withdrawal or Course Change Form” and the textbook must be presented to the bookstore manager for consideration for a textbook refund.
- The bookstore manager has the authorization to refuse or to reduce the repurchase price for any book that is torn, worn, abused, or not needed for the course in subsequent semesters.
- Textbooks may be sold back to the bookstore at the end of each semester. The repurchase price will be approximately 33% if purchased as new, and approximately 18% price if purchased as used.
Note: “Original condition” describes a book which is clean and does not contain any handwritten notes, including the student's name and highlighting. Cellophane bound books must be returned with cellophane intact for a 100% refund. All books will be examined for approval.
