Product Returns

  • Merchandise must be in its original saleable condition.
  • All refunds or exchanges must be accompanied by receipt.

Textbook Refunds

Textbooks purchased for Fall, Spring, or Summer semester courses are returnable for a full refund until the add/drop deadline for the current semester. This policy also applies to online orders. Textbooks purchased after the add/drop deadline are final sale and therefore not returnable.

General Merchandise Refunds

Refunds of General Merchandise will be accepted within 30 days from date purchased when accompanied with a Campus Store receipt. Merchandise needs to be in the same condition as at the time of purchase with price tags attached. General Merchandise includes office/school supplies, clothing, gifts, and art supplies.

  • Any opened shrink wrapped materials and spiral course packs

Textbook Rental Policy

  1. I am renting and am in receipt of the rental book(s) shown on the receipt. I have paid the non-refundable rental fee, and understand that the return policies of the store also apply to rental items. I acknowledge that the book, whether new or used, is in good condition.
  2. I acknowledge the non-return replacement cost and replacement fee that appear on the receipt.
  3. I will return the book to the Bookstore no later than the rental return due date. If I ship the book, it must be received at the Bookstore no later than the return date, shipping prepaid. Any other return will be rejected.
  4. I will return the book in good salable condition as determined by the Bookstore. All CDs and other component parts included with this book, must be present and in salable condition as determined by the store upon return. Very limited highlighting and writing are acceptable.
  5. I am responsible for risk of loss from any cause, including theft, lost item(s), or return in unsalable condition, such as damage caused by liquids (rain, snow, coffee, juice, etc.), fire (scorched), chemical spills, tooth marks (rodents, pets, etc.), missing component parts, and spine damage.
  6. If I am late or if I fail to return the book, I will pay the Bookstore the non-return replacement cost and non-return processing fee as shown on the receipt and any applicable sales taxes, at any time after the rental return due date. I authorize the Bookstore to withdraw/charge the same debit/credit card account that was left as the deposit account to make this payment.
