The policy for a refund on book purchases is posted at the Bookstore. The receipt of purchase is required for any refund. A full refund on books used for full-semester courses is available up to one week after the first day of class. Full refunds are available for all other courses within 48 hours of the first class. The Bookstore does have a book buyback program approximately one week prior to the end of the semester.
The Bookstore has available a wide range of textbooks, educational materials, and school supplies. The Bookstore is typically open for additional hours during peak times.
