Textbook Return Deadline

The deadline to return Summer 2019 textbooks from on-campus courses without a fine was Monday, July 22, 2019 at 4 p.m.  There is no penalty for textbooks returned at any point during the semester/term prior to the return deadline, with the exception of textbooks associated with dropped/withdrawn courses.

Late fines were charged $20 per book and were posted to individual student accounts immediately following the return deadline of Monday, July 22, 2019 at 4 p.m. for textbooks from on-campus courses not returned or postmarked by the deadline.  Late textbooks were only accepted during the five-day grace period and were subject to a $20 per book late fine, with the exception of textbooks from online and off-campus courses. The deadline to return or postmark Summer 2019 textbooks from online and off-campus courses without a fine and textbook charges was the five-day grace period deadline, Saturday, July 27 at 4:30 p.m.  After the five-day grace period deadline, no textbooks will be accepted from on-campus, online, and off-campus courses and all late textbook charges were posted to the associated student account along with the previously posted late fine charges. There are no refunds. 

Note: If a student has mailed their textbooks back to us, we go by the postmark date on your package. We encourage the insuring of all packages.

**Textbooks from the Summer 2019 semester must be returned or postmarked by the deadline and cannot be returned when students return to campus for the Fall 2019 semester.
