The Textbook Services Office coordinates all aspects of the textbook usage program, in which primary textbooks are provided for most of the undergraduate courses. Students pay a per credit hour fee for textbook usage. Students pick up their textbooks at the beginning of each trimester and must return the book by 5 p.m. of the last day of finals of the trimester. Late fees are assessed for books that are not returned on time. A $5.00 per day fine begins after this date and can accumulate up to $50.00 plus the price of the textbooks/CD's not returned.
Hours for picking up textbooks will be published before each semester and made available to students. All students must verify on-line at the beginning of the semester prior to picking up their textbooks. Students should bring their ID card with them to pick up their textbooks. Students can have someone else pick up their textbooks as long as they have verified and provide their 919#. If textbooks are picked up after the designated times, there will be a late fee assessed to the student's university account. See the miscellaneous fee schedule for Late Textbook Pickup fee.
Students may also purchase discontinued textbooks at a reduced rate. Students wishing to purchase textbooks currently being used may do so by contacting Textbook Services at 660.562.1150.
