Fall Textbook Issue Hours

Students can start checking out textbooks for Fall term on Tuesday, Aug. 27. We will open for a limited amount of hours on Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend and will have extended hours during the first week of classes. A complete schedule and key reminders for checking out textbooks can be found HERE.

Summer Dropped Classes

During summer term, Textbook Services does not enforce the rule to return your books when dropping a class. You don't need to return them until the summer term due date (day before fall classes start.) You will receive an automated email telling you to return them, which you can disregard.
