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 University; all funds return to the University to pay for academic, athletic, and organizational groups.
Textbook Rental Option
The Campus Store offers rental books each semester. They will appear online in yellow. As with any rental program, be sure to check our used book prices as some are cheaper than the rental price of a new or used book. Be sure to return the book at the end of the semester before the last day of exams or you will be charged the full price of a new textbook to replace it. There is no refund of the replacement price after the last day of exams.
If professors allow used books, and used books are available we will do our best to fill your MyLynchburg order with used books. Please indicate on your MyLynchburg 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!
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).
The University of Lynchburg Campus Store will not make exchanges, refunds, or any compensation for books mistakenly purchased from any other source utilizing the information provided online. This information is correct as we know it at the time it is posted. Changes, modifications and additions to course number, section, ISBN or price may be made at any time up to and including the first few weeks of the session.
Textbook Buy Back
You may sell your used books back during the special buy-back events at the end and beginning of each semester.
We pay more for books that we need for the next semester. It does not matter where you purchased the book, if we need it we are happy to buy it. You will be given cash for books you sell. A used book wholesaler purchases the books for the Campus Store and for themselves to resell nationally.
