Textbooks may be purchased from the bookstore. The bookstore inventory includes new or used textbooks for purchase or rent. Rented textbooks are available for most classes. Books may be purchased or rented at the Oakwood, Forsyth or Barrow campuses or online at Supplies required or suggested by the instructor may be available for purchase in the bookstore. In addition, school spirit items are part of the inventory.

The bookstore does buybacks year-round expect for the first two weeks of each term. This provides students with maximum buyback time without causing "Book Rush" confusion.

Students may receive a full refund for a textbook purchases if:
  • Return is initiated within the first week of class for the term
  • An original receipt is presented at the time of the return
  • Textbook is in the same condition as when purchased. New textbooks cannot show wear and tear and cannot have pen or pencil marks in or on the book, If the textbook was shrink wrapped when purchased, the returned textbook must still be in unopened shrink wrap.
    Note: We recommend students confirm with the instructor that the textbook is the one needed for class prior to removing the shrink wrap.

Jackson and Barrow books are stocked at the Barrow bookstore which is a "RUSH ONLY" store and only open the first week of class. After the first week of class, those books will be available at the Oakwood Campus.

Dawson and Forsyth books are stocked at the Forsyth bookstore.

Students who wish to purchase their books at another campus may email the Oakwood bookstore and request that the books be transferred to the store location of their choice. Bookstore staff will make every effort to have the textbooks at the requested location the next business day. However, especially during the first week of the term, the transfer may require additional time. Therefore, the college recommends students email the store to verify the books arrived at the requested location to prevent unnecessary trips to the store.

Online students who are purchasing books on campus should check the store's website at to see which campus their textbooks are located. They will need course number and instructor (example-CRJ 101/lnternet-Chapman). The bookstore does not use Course Reference Numbers.

Students may use Financial Aid in the bookstore once the College Financial Aid Office awards the aid and provides the award information to the bookstore. The student will need a printed schedule and the Student ID Card to utilize their aid for textbook purchases.
