ONLINE ORDERING: Save time and pre-order online with shipping via UPS Ground.

CREDIT CARD ORDERS: Orders usually ship in 2 business days. Credit Card orders should also be returned/exchanged by the drop/add period or by the last day of the Financial Aid period at the latest.  Book Buyback is only available after that date.  

FINANCIAL AID ORDERS: Financial Aid orders and Credit Card orders will ship within 48 business hours of your order but can take longer during the first week of classes. If you need a book immediately it is usually best to come to the Campus Store. Books/Access Codes ordered online should be ordered under the store where your course and section is offered. 

We no longer offer in store pickup for web orders; if you would like to pick up your books in the bookstore, you can just come into the bookstore and we will help you with your books.

All orders are filled with books we have in-stock at the time you placed your order. If we do not have a book in your order, that portion of your ordered will not be filled, you will not be charged for that book and you will need to check the in-stock status of the book again after you receive your order. Prices on our website are subject to change and the correct price will be listed on your receipt. You have 10 days to make all returns/exchanges during Fall/Spring and 6 days during Summer Term. Receipt is required.

Financial Aid Info: F.A. includes Pell grant, student loans, scholarships, and sponsorships. Please make purchases in the Bookstores during the dates listed above or online using your Student I.D. for all books & supplies. Have your Student I.D., another acceptable ID and your schedule BEFORE coming to the stores.  Some items like kits, uniforms, and computers can only be purchased in-store.  Pell and Loans generally allow you to purchase any items in the stores except food and drink. Scholarships/Sponsorships outline what is allowable in your award letter.

Returns/Exchanges: Please complete your return or exchange once you drop or add a course.  The final date to complete a return or exchange for a term is always the last day of the Financial Aid Period.  All mailed returns/exchanges must arrive by this date so that we can credit your account properly, otherwise they are returned to sender.  Book Buyback is available after this date.  

Thank you again for shopping the GTCC Bookstore! Have a great Semester!!
