New books must be in the original selling condition. A full refund cannot be given on textbooks that have been written in, had the plastic removed, or been damaged in any way, Students who drop a course may return their books within 48 hours after the course is dropped provided the Bookstore has not started processing returns. A drop/add slip signed by the registrar and professor and a cash register receipt is required. Returns processing starts 4 weeks after classes begin in the fall and 2 weeks after classes begin in the summer semesters. Secondly, you must complete a Return Merchandise Authorization form.
