To estimate textbook expenses in advance, visit the College Bookstore Web site! Your fee statement will have the information you need to inquire about textbooks on the Web. Term, subject (same as department), course number and section number is what you need for your textbook inquiry. These costs are current estimates and are subject to change!
You may reserve your textbooks online from the convenience of your own computer at www.saintpaulcollegebookstore.com. Please make sure to print out the reservation confirmation and bring it with you to pick up your books. Your books will be pulled and you can pick them up in a separate line at the Bookstore. Payment will need to be made at the time of pick up.
Full refunds for most textbooks are given within 5 school days of purchase, providing there is proof of purchase (receipt) and the textbook is undamaged and in mint condition. Textbooks returned prior to the 5th day that are not in mint condition will be refunded at current “used book” pricing. After the 5th day, students will be encouraged to sell their books at the book buy-back. (Please visit us online for more information.)
Used Book Buy-Back
In an effort to keep your textbook costs down, the Bookstore has initiated a “used book” policy. The Bookstore will attempt to stock used books for most titles. In addition, the Bookstore will schedule a book buy-back at the end of each semester, where students may resell their textbooks for cash! For more information, please visit the College Bookstore web site book buy back page.
