Textbook Return Policy:

A receipt is required to return any textbook.

Any textbook for the current term may be returned or exchanged for 3 weekdays following the day of purchase or with a signed drop/add slip until the end of the sixth week of the term.  After the end of the sixth week, we can accept no returns.

Both new and used books are returnable.  New textbooks must be returned in mint condition with no markings.  Wrapped textbook packages are not eligible for return once opened.

If you return a title from a Big Package order, your entire 5% discount on the remaining titles will be forfeited.

If you placed a textbook order by mail for delivery your home or business address and received the wrong title, please contact us via email at [email protected].


Non-Textbook Return Policy:

All items are eligible for return within 30 days of purchase with a receipt. Items returned after 30 days or items returned without a receipt are not eligible for return.

Items must be returned in original condition with original tags or wrapping intact. Items returned without original wrappings or tags, or items that have been used or washed prior to return, will not be accepted for return.

Items received as gifts without a receipt may be eligible for exchange. Items must be returned in original condition with original tags or wrapping intact, and must be returned within 30 days. These items will only be accepted as an exchange for another item.

If you have received an item or size different than the size you requested on your order (i.e. if the bookstore sends you the wrong item), or if your order is damaged in transit, you may send the item back to the bookstore and the bookstore will reimburse you for your shipping costs.

If you have questions about returning an item, please call us at 888-232-6523 or email us at [email protected].
