Bookstore Information

We realize textbooks are available from a wide range of sources, but there are several important reasons to purchase your textbooks from the Hood College Bookstore:

  • We have the exact textbook and materials required by your professor.
  • We will refund purchases during the first week of classes with the original sales receipt from the Hood College Bookstore.
  • If your professor changes their mind on a title, or sections are changed – we will give you a full refund with a valid sales receipt from the Hood College Bookstore. If you purchased your books elsewhere, we cannot offer you a refund.
  • Textbook information is posted on our website for your convenience, but only those textbooks purchased through the Hood College Bookstore are guaranteed to be the correct textbook, and eligible for refunds.
  • The Hood College Bookstore supports Hood College, no other textbook website or bookstore does.

We realize you have choices and we thank you for your business.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
