When to Buy

Vist MyLC and order your textbooks by clicking "Buy Textbooks" on the left menu bar as early as 5 weeks before classes meet. Place your order no later than 2 weeks before classes start so that you can pick up your order when you return to campus. Pick up dates and locations will be emailed to you.

How to Buy Textbooks for Class

  2. Click Buy Textbooks on the left menu bar. Select the semester of textbooks you would like to see and/or purchase.
  3. You will see your course schedule and corresponding textbook information whether it is required, whether new and used are available, and the cost and quantity in stock. Caution: items listed are subject to change.
  4. If you would like to purchase, indicate the quantity and add to cart.

Please note if there are any books that you would prefer to purchase new.

Why Buy from the Campus Store?

Any changes by the professor will be easily handled for you, including refunds and exchanges.

If you change sections, your books will change. The Campus Store can easily refund and exchange books.

You don't have to worry about purchasing the wrong edition or receiving your books in time for class.

You are supporting the College; all funds return to the College to pay for academic, athletic, and organizational groups. 

Textbook Rental Option

Textbook rentals are done online with our rental partner and require a credit card. Be sure to check our used book prices as some are cheaper than the rental price of a new book. Be sure you ship back the book at the end of the semester or you will be charged the full price for the textbook.

Used Textbooks

If professors allow used books, and used books are available we will do our best to fill your MYLC order with used books. Please indicate on your MYLC order that you want used books and if it is ok to substitute new books when used books are not availabe. Textbook orders are filled on a first come first serve bases so get your order in early so you get used books first!

Refunds

A copy of the refund policy will be attached to your sales receipt at the time of purchase. Your sales receipt is required for a refund.

Refunds are made in the manner purchased. New course materials must be unmarked and in original shrink-wrap. Used books have an earlier refund deadline (first week of class) than the new books refund deadline (third week of class).

Textbook Buy Back

You may sell your used books back during the special buy-back events at the end and beginning of each semester.

If you sell books you purchased from the Campus Store, you will be given more $$ when you sell and you will be given a chance to free books. This is our way of thanking you for buying at the Campus Store and supporting the College.
