  • The lowest cost options are selected by default.  If you want new books you must change the type to New (you must do this individually for each class).  Although the Used textbook price is listed, it may not be in stock at the time we pack your order.  The Cobber Bookstore will automatically substitute and charge you for a New textbook when Used textbooks are not available.  Prices subject to change.  The bookstore will not contact you regarding any textbook substitutions or changes in your textbook order totals.

  • We suggest you wait to purchase optional books until you have been to class.  By default, both optional and required books are selected, so you must change the drop-down box titled "Select Item Quantity" to "Required" to order only the books required for your section.

  • You have the first FOUR class days of each semester or block to return current semester textbooks.  You must have your cash register receipt!  If you have written or highlighted in your book or it is not in absolutely new resalable condition, twenty five percent will be deducted from the new price.  Shrink wrapped textbooks and bundled textbooks are not returnable once opened.  Internet codes, transmitters and all other access code and sealed materials are not returnable if accessed or opened. Custom printed text, lab packets and manuals are not exchangeable or returnable.

  • Your textbook purchase may be made with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover).  You may also use your ID charge for textbook purchases only.  Your credit card or ID charge will be charged at the time we pack your order.

  • If your course or CRN is not listed or reads TBA (to be announced), the Cobber Bookstore has not received information from the instructor for your class. If the CRN is listed as "ALL-STAFF" then all CRN's of that class use the same books, regardless of the professor or CRN.
