The best time to purchase your textbooks is within one to two weeks of the first class day as this will be when the optimum quantities of texts will be on the shelf.  
 
Q?
What do I need to have in order to purchase/find my textbooks in the Campus Store?
A:
Students must have a student ID card to purchase textbooks and a copy of their schedule to help locate them.  

Our bookshelves are organized alphabetically by the course ID, which is listed on the class schedule. Without the schedule, it can very difficult to find the correct textbooks.

All students enrolled in a class at Hutchinson Community College are assigned a Student ID number.  This ID number is listed in DragonZone on your profile page.   You will need to visit the Student ID Center, located in the basement of the Student Union, to obtain a Student ID card before coming to purchase your books.

Q?

Why aren’t all of my textbooks covered by my book scholarship?

A:
Book scholarships cover textbooks that can be re-used in future semesters. Lab manuals, workbooks, and other consumables cannot be reused, so they are not eligible for scholarship. In addition, a textbook must be used for 9 semesters and listed as required in order to be book scholarship eligible.

What are the benefits of purchasing my textbooks from the Campus Store?
A:
•    If an instructor changes a book after the class starts, the student can exchange it for the correct book (see refund policy for additional information on deadlines http://www.hutchcc.edu/campus-store/textbooks)
 
•    If a class is canceled by the college, the student can return the book for a full refund (see refund policy for additional information on deadlines http://www.hutchcc.edu/campus-store/textbooks)
 
•    The Campus Store is owned and operated by Hutchinson Community College for the benefit of our community. All proceeds from our operations are returned to the college.
Q?

How does the Campus Store choose what books to sell?

A:

The Campus Store does not decide which textbooks to use. Your instructors and the head of each department are responsible for the textbook selection. Once they have made a decision, they tell the Campus Store which books to order. The Campus Store encourages faculty to make their decisions early so that we can find more used copies and keep them on-hand.

Q?

Book Buy Back

A:
Book Buy Back helps the The Campus Store keep an extensive selection of used books in stock. This event is available to everyone other than Book Scholarship & Book Rental students.

Buy Back is held during the final exam week at the conclusion of each semester. Be sure to check The Campus Store website for specific times and dates.  

Buy Back is a service offered to our students by the Campus Store, but that is operated by Nebraska Book Company.
