  • End of Semester Textbook Buyback: Although you may sell your textbooks back to The College Stores any day, the best time to get the most value for textbooks is at our end of the semester buyback. This occurs on the Thursday (December 5) of the final week of classes and continues until the last day of finals (December 13). Did you know that selling back your books to The College Stores not only saves you money, but it also helps other students? Being able to provide more used textbooks (our number one objective) helps lower textbooks costs for others the following semester. We would rather buyback textbooks from our students than use book supply dealers. Our number one goal is to purchase your textbooks for 50% of the price you paid for them at the beginning of the semester. Thus, if you paid $100 for a textbook, you could receive up to $50 at the end of the semester.
  • Dare to Compare Textbooks: Dare to Compare! Many people assume because we are the on-campus bookstore, we will be higher priced than our competitors. That’s why we ask you to Dare to Compare! We believe if you compare our prices with other booksellers, you will choose us. We have great prices, convenient location, and there is NEVER sales tax on required course materials! LARGEST SELECTION OF USED TEXTBOOKS - We strive to buy back as many textbooks from our students to fulfill textbook quotas for the upcoming semester. We also have the resources to get books from all over the country to ensure our shelves are stocked full of used textbooks. We know textbooks.

  • Flex Plan: Your student ID card is the one card you will need for your Flex Plan. Sometimes your financial aid is not in when you need to buy your textbooks; by setting up your Flex Plan it will be added right to your semester's tuition bill! With one swipe of your student ID card, the Flex Plan may be used to purchase anything from textbooks, art, computer, and school supplies to health and beauty products at our Hewitt locations. At the Campus Center, use your Flex Plan to pickup a sweatshirt for gameday or a Hallmark greeting card or emblematic item for family and friends. You can either put money into your Flex account from excess funds from your loans or by adding money to the tuition bill. Learn more or setup your Flex Plan today..
