The College Store (Building C on the main campus) will reopen on Monday, August 8, for in-person and online shopping.

This is the first semester the College Store has allowed in-store shopping since 2020. Students can still purchase textbooks, supplies, and HFC merchandise online if you prefer.

Textbook information

Fall textbook information can be viewed on the College Store’s website. Book information on the website is updated as new orders are received.

Effective Monday, Aug. 8: You can begin using third party sponsorships. Sponsored students will be assisted at the Customer Service Desk in the back of the College Store.

Effective Monday, Aug. 15: You can begin using financial aid for College Store purchases. You should check the maximum limit available prior to selecting Financial Aid as a payment method. All orders with insufficient aid funding will be canceled. If you are using Financial Aid in the store, you will need to provide an HFC Student ID or other picture ID in addition to your HFC Student ID number.

Information regarding pickup and shipping

The College Store will offer in-store pickup at no charge for the Fall 2022 semester. Store pickup customers should wait until you receive email notification that your order is ready for pickup on campus. Orders may take up to 48-72 hours to be processed based on the volume of orders received, although most orders take considerably less time.

Orders can be picked up in the store Monday through Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We will need your order number and customer name for pickup. Online order pickup is available in Aisle 4. Signs for the location are posted in the store.

Store pickup customers should use the North entrance to the College and then park in Parking Lot No. 3 near the College Store.

Orders can also be shipped to your home via UPS Ground. Shipping charges of $7.99 per order will be applied.

Rental returns

The deadline for Summer 2022 semester rentals is Friday, August 19. Summer rental returns can be placed in the rental drop box by the Learning Success Center (Building A) near the flagpole and the circle drive off Evergreen. The drop box is under the overhang by the east entrance to Building A.

You should tape a note to your book with your name and student number to ensure proper credit to your account. The rental sticker on the back of the book must also be intact to get credit for the return. Other books, such as buybacks, surplus books, or books from Henry Ford Early College or the Eshleman Library should NOT be placed in the drop box.

End of Summer Semester 2022 Book Buyback

Book buyback has been discontinued at the College Store until further notice. Students may use this link to deal directly with Nebraska Book Company. There are also other options available online if you wish to sell your textbooks on your own.

Information regarding Financial Aid purchases

Financial aid cannot be used at the College Store (in-person or on the website) on Thursdays until the weekly refunds have been processed. This applies to Thursdays after the first refund process is run for the term.

College Store manager Pamela Hall thanks you for your patience, as the College Store is receiving a high volume of orders. College Store staff members will get your orders fulfilled as soon as possible.
