Textbook Return Policy

Fall 2016 Policy:
-All returns must be accompanied by your original cash register receipt.
-Textbooks purchased new must be in new condition for refund.
-Through Sept. 6th, books may be returned for any reason with original receipt.
-Through Sept. 13th, only books for dropped courses may be returned. Receipt and proof of course drop are required.

Refunds can be obtained at the USM Bookstore, as long as the books were purchased from the USM Bookstore. Refunds are given for the current semester only, within the stated times for the term.

Returns must be accompanied by a valid cash register receipt. It is the student's responsibility to keep their receipts.

New textbooks may be returned for a refund only if they are in new condition. Do not write in any new textbook or open shrink-wrapped packages before attending your first class! If you drop a class or otherwise decide you don't wish to keep a book, we will be unable to refund your money for a new text that has been marked or damaged, or a package which has been opened.

Used books must be in the same condition as when purchased.
