Customer Service

Ordering Online

As a student, we recognize that you now have more alternatives than ever before for buying textbooks. We believe that your college bookstore, whether online or the brick and mortar location, is the best possible shopping choice for you, because it provides the following benefits.

  • A knowledgeable staff who is familiar with the university, the campus, knows your faculty, and works in cooperation with them to get the appropriate information to assist you.
  • The ability to take credit card payments.
  • A staff willing to offer exceptional customer service to help you and your family in the transition to college life.
  • Making used books available to you! This is the single most significant way that we are reducing the cost of textbooks for students. Buying used books can save college students even more than buying new textbooks from any other source.
  • Buyback services that enable students to get extra money in cash at the end of the term for books they no longer need or want.
  • A textbook pre-purchase system that enables you to have the books you'll need for the term delivered to your home.
  • Announcements about special events, bookstore specials and promotions.
  • In addition to price and these service factors, before making your final textbook purchases please consider the following?

    Is the book you're seeking from other online sources the same edition that is being used in class? Having the appropriate edition of a textbook is extremely important, for obvious reasons.

    Have you ordered the book in time to be available for class?
    Some other online booksellers will ship the book anywhere from three to six weeks from the date of order (not us!). This is unacceptable to students who, many times, have assignments due immediately after the start of class.

    Thank you for visiting our online bookstore!
