Textbook Refund Policy
Following the first day of classes each semester, a time period is scheduled to accommodate textbook refunds (posted in the Bookstore and on the Bookstore web site) for incorrectly purchased books. This process takes place at the buyback window located past the Phillips Hall Annex Post Office. A refund will be issued as long as the following requirements are met:

A. You have a cash register receipt and student ID. NO EXCEPTIONS.
B. You purchased the book for the current semester.
C. New books cannot be marked in any way. Books purchased in a sealed package MUST BE RETURNED in a sealed package (NO EXCEPTIONS). Books purchased as used books may be returned in that condition.
D. If you purchased by a credit card or ID Express, you will be issued credit to that account, not cash.
E. Books must be returned during the designated return period which will be posted in the textbook area of the bookstore and on the Bookstore web site. Last day to return books for the SPRING 2008 semester is Tuesday, January 29th, 2008.
