Textbook Loan Program


Textbooks are available for check out each semester. Some classes there will have rental fees added to your account when you enroll. Some classes using Openstax textbooks there are no rental fees applied.

Openstax books are also available online as a free download.

Textbooks are due by 4:00pm on the Friday the week of finals.

Failure to return textbooks will result in a Non-Returned Book Hold being placed on the student account. A Non-Returned Book Hold will prevent the release of all academic records and transcripts. Five (5) business days after the last day of class students will be charged the full retail price.

Book Buy Back is available if a student has been charged for non-returned books, only on books that are still in use by our instructors. Buyback will be offered at up to 50% of the retail price charged to the students. This Buyback credit amount will be placed on the student account.

Books returned in poor condition or damaged, by water or other means, will not be accepted for return and the student will be responsible for the full retail price of the book. The bookstore staff has the right to refuse the return of textbooks in poor condition. The student account will be charged for any non-returned and/or damaged books.

Textbooks may be picked up at the Pirate Bookstore located in the Academic building, upper level, next to the Library. A printed schedule is required to check out textbooks.

Online students please use the Book Online order form at the right to order your books.

Textbooks may be returned to the Pirate Bookstore or placed in the Drop Box outside the Bookstore. Online course textbooks, returned by mail, must be postmarked by the return Deadline.

Consumable items are charged to the student account and are not included in the Textbook Loan Program. Consumables include, but are not limited to, workbooks, software, online codes or lab books.
