The College’s Bookstore is located in Buchanan Hall adjacent to the cafeteria. It is open from 7:45 a. m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and sells required textbooks, supplies, and Southwest insignia clothing. Extended hours are kept during rush periods.
Students are encouraged to attend classes prior to purchasing books to avoid unnecessary returns. A schedule with the course number and course name helps to simplify finding the correct text. The bookstore will accept checks (with the student’s social security number and driver’s license number) for the amount of purchase only. MasterCard, VISA, American Express cards, and financial aid are accepted, also. Returns must be made within ten (10) days from the first day of class and be accompanied by a receipt. Do not write in textbooks in the event they may have to be returned.
The Bookstore has an extensive book buy-back program to buy and sell used textbooks. The Bookstore will buy back (based on demand) textbooks for the current wholesale value during exam week in May and December.
