The SWCC 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 purchase textbooks as early as possible to ensure their book is available prior to classes beginning. Students must bring a hard copy printout of their course schedule to ensure the correct textbook is purchased. The bookstore will accept checks for the amount of purchase only. Eligible students may charge their books to their financial aid award during approved calendar times, and the bookstore also accepts MasterCard, VISA, American Express, and Discover Card.
Returns must be made within ten (10) days from the first day of classes 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.
