Textbook Purchases and Refunds
Course materials for summer session may be purchased new or used online at myLC; click on “buy textbooks” in the left menu bar.
Want to charge on campus? Open a charge or declining balance account online. The College account may be used on campus at the following locations: Campus Store, campus post office, Westover Room, and, summer hours permitting, for the dining hall, Domino’s, and Brewed Awakenings in Elliot & Rosel Schewel Hall. Your LC college ID is required to purchase on account.
You do not need to open an account to purchase textbooks online at myLC. You may also purchase textbooks in store with cash, check, or credit/debit/check card if you do not want to purchase thru myLC. An account must be opened to charge in store.
All myLC online textbook purchases will be charged to a College account (if the account is not on hold for non-payment) and can be paid online with a credit card at www.lynchburg.edu/payments (pick college account).
Please order your summer textbooks at least one week prior to the summer session starting. If you are taking an online class and are not required to come to campus, please include shipping and note this in the comment/instruction section of your order. Anyone not taking an online class is expected to pick up their textbooks at the Campus Store the business day before the class starts as long as 24 hours in a business day has passed from the time you placed the order. You can come to the store and purchase the book without placing a myLC order. If you order online, you must pay online and not in the store. Store hours are weekdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The store is located in the Drysdale Student Center on the same floor as the Westover Room (now the 2nd floor). Please visit www.lynchburg.edu/campus-store for closings and other information. The Campus Store will be closed May 30 for Memorial Day, June 30 and July 1 for year-end inventory, and July 4 for the Independence Day holiday.

Grades and Transcripts
Grade reports for each term are available to students online at www.lynchburg.edu/studentsonline on the Wednesday following the end of the term.
Academic Record transcripts, reflecting the preceding term, are usually not available until the Friday following the end of the term. Courses with ending dates prior to the last day of a term are graded with the “normal” courses for that term.
Students who wish to have transcripts sent elsewhere should make such requests in the Registrar’s Office at least two weeks before the transcript is needed. A $3 fee is charged for each transcript requested.
All general regulations of the College governing conduct on the campus and all academic rules and requirements concerning class attendance, grades and credits, examinations, and scholarships are in full effect for the summer program. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 provides for the confidentiality of students’ educational records. For specific information, consult the undergraduate or graduate catalogs and The Hornet student handbook.
All enrolled students are bound to honor high standards of conduct and to maintain the spirit of honor and integrity. The Honor Code (see The Hornet student handbook) is in effect during the summer session with the usual sanction for a violation as suspension from the College. Any student who observes a possible violation is expected to contact the professor or the Office of the Dean of Students.
