Cost of Books

The Campus Store wants you to know that we understand the concerns students have about the cost of their textbooks. We offer the following suggestions for getting the most out of your textbook budget:

Attend the first class before buying books.

Wait to go to class to find out if the textbooks and other course materials are a mandatory part of the course or if they are used as a reference to support classroom lectures.

Distinguish between "required" and "suggested" books.

It is important to know if you will actually need to own the materials to be successful in class or if the materials are intended to be supplementary. This information is available to you on the booklists located online at this website or from your professor. You are almost always better off attending the first class before buying optional books.

Check the store's Refund Policy before you buy.

As a standard policy, the Campus Bookstore offers a 14-day return policy. All custom courseware is non-refundable so make sure that you choose the correct item. View full refund policy here.
