The student book and supply store is centrally located in the Admissions and Registration Center at McAlister Square. It offers students required textbooks, supplemental books and supplies, as well as soft goods and gift items bearing the college name and logo. Computers, computer software, web cameras, external hard drives, and other technology items may be purchased at the McAlister location.
Barton, Brashier, Benson and Northwest Campuses have auxiliary bookstores that offer many of the same books and supplies. Online ordering is available with home delivery or in-store pick up at all locations.
The bookstore will buy back used books from students when the books are resalable (see note). Books, if in new condition, may be returned for full credit during the first two weeks of classes when accompanied by a sales slip and a student ID card. Books that include an access code, if the access code has been used, are not refundable. Some classes have an access code only. If the access code has been used, it is nonrefundable.
The bookstore will accept checks for payments if made out for the exact amount of the purchase (Driver’s License-ID and Colleague Student ID Number required). No two-party checks are accepted. VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express cards are accepted. Individual credit terms cannot be arranged.
