Book Buyback helps the Campus Store keep an extensive selection of used books in stock. This event is available to everyone other than Book Scholarship & Book Rental students. If you purchased your textbooks and did not sign a rental or book scholarship agreement you can sell your books for cash. Please do not sell scholarship or rental books for cash, you will be charged for them.
New for 2022-2023. We will buyback your textbooks anytime, during business hours, with the except of the start of a semester. This time is reserved for those students who are purchasing/ordering textbooks. We will still hold a buyback during final exam week at the conclusion of each semester. Be sure to check the Campus Store website for specific times and dates.
Buyback is a service offered to our students by the Campus Store staff.
The Campus Store does not decide which textbooks to use for each course. Your instructors and the head of each department are responsible for the textbook selection. Once they have made a decision, they tell the Campus Store which books to order. The Campus Store encourages faculty to make their decisions early so that we can find more used copies and keep them on-hand.
• If an instructor changes a book after the class starts, the student can exchange it for the correct book (see refund policy for additional information on deadlines http://www.hutchcc.edu/campus-store/textbooks)
• If a class is canceled by the college, the student can return the book for a full refund (see refund policy for additional information on deadlines http://www.hutchcc.edu/campus-store/textbooks)
• The Campus Store is owned and operated by Hutchinson Community College for the benefit of our community. All proceeds from our operations are returned to the college.
Book scholarships cover textbooks that can be re-used in future semesters. Lab manuals, workbooks, and other consumables cannot be reused, so they are not eligible for a book scholarship. In addition, a textbook must be used for 6 semesters and listed as required in order to be book scholarship eligible.
We staple a copy of our refund policy to your receipt at the time of your purchase. You may also find it here. Please contact the Campus Store if you have specific questions.
ALWAYS KEEP YOUR RECEIPTS!! The original bookstore register receipt or packing receipt is always REQUIRED for refunds and exchanges. We do NOT keep copies of bookstore register receipts and are unable to duplicate them at a later time.
You can call us at 620-665-3517 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Yes, the Campus Store offers a rental program. Rental eligible titles and prices vary from semester to semester. Our rental program is only available during the Fall and Spring semesters.
The rental program does require the student to come into one of the Campus Store locations (Hutchinson, McPherson, Newton) to sign a contract.
High school students are not currently eligible to for our rental program.
It depends on how you are paying for your textbooks.
Book scholarship students must come into the Campus Store in Hutchinson to sign a contract before they can charge books to their scholarship. Books cannot be shipped to a book scholarship student. A Scholarship Book reservation form can be found in your DragonZone on the Textbook page. This will ensure that your books are pulled for you and cuts down your wait time during fall/spring rush.
Book Rental students can go to any of the Campus Store locations (Hutchinson, McPherson, Newton) and sign a book rental agreement. At this time book rentals are not available online.

Students must have a student ID card to purchase textbooks and a copy of their schedule to help locate them on our shelves.
Our bookshelves are organized alphabetically by the course ID, which is listed on the class schedule. Without the schedule, it can very difficult to find the correct textbooks.

You can also find your schedule online in your DragonZone
The best time to purchase your textbooks is within one to two weeks of the first day of class as this will be when the optimum quantities of textbooks will be on the shelf.
