Q. I purchased a textbook with water damage, now I can't return it or sell it back. Why did you sell it then?

Our staff looks for any water damaged textbooks during our receiving processes and when ringing customers out at the registers, but sometimes they slip past us. If you purchase a text book with any damage you have 7 days to bring it back to us and we will swap the book out for an undamaged book. However, after the 7 days you assume responsibility for the textbook and any damage present in it. This applies to rental textbooks as well.

Q. I'm a CCP student why am I being asked to pay for my books? Why were some items on my order not packed?

The CCP program does not require students to pay out of pocket for their books but they still must be paid for and that is with student financial aid. All purchases must go through a cash register or being processed online so we can appropriately charge the schools that participate in the program.
If you bought your books online you do not need to pay for them again in the bookstore if you are picking them up, once you have received confirmation that your order is complete. (the second email you will receive from the bookstore.) Simply head to the customer service desk and let a staff member know that you are picking up an online order.
CCP Funds only cover required materials, this does not includes, UPS shipping, rental textbooks, barcharts/study aides and any general merchandise that is not required by professors for a class.
