Materials that are lost, stolen, or damaged beyond repair must be paid for a full list price.
Refunds may be given, upon return, for lost materials costing $16 or more, if the following conditions are met: return date is within 1 year of payment; book has not been replaced; book is still current. A $15 per item service charge will be subtracted from refunds given on lost materials.
Students who return materials which are damaged, but still usable, will be charged fines which are based on the original cost of the material, the extent of the damage, the age of the material, and on the approximate cost of repair. Materials which are damaged and no longer usable must be paid for at full price. Students may not purchase a replacement copy of a text for damaged texts.
There is a two week period at the beginning of each semester during which students may inspect their textbooks for damages and report any problems to Textbook Services. After this two week period, the student may be held responsible for damage to textbooks at the discretion of the Textbook Services manager. Students should bring in books with binding damage at any time during the semester to be repaired.
