What are normal bookstore hours?

SUMMER HOURS

Monday - Thursday, 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Fridays 9:30 AM - 2:00 PM
Extended hours during rush periods. 

*Please note, for classes held on the W. A. Lettinga campus textbooks are available but not all books for all classes are on the shelves. If you are taking online classes or attending classes at another campus, the books you need may not be available in the store. Please shop at the Online Bookstore.

Tips on Shopping for Textbooks:

  • Shop sooner rather than later – more used books will be available and you will be sure you have all of your materials ready to start on the first day of class.
  • If ordering online, do so at least 2 weeks before classes start to allow for shipping time.
  • Buy used books when available to save money.
  • Bring your class schedule or course syllabus with you. You can print it from the Student Connection.
  • Check the textbook link on duspirit.com for price and ISBN information
  • Ask for assistance from bookstore staff. They are there to help you get the right textbooks, materials, and supplies.
  • If your book comes with an online application, do not open or activate codes until needed for class.
  • Books for online courses or in-seat classes at other campus locations order books from our Online Bookstore.

Where can I find the textbook information - ISBN, title, price, etc.?

You can find textbook information on the Online Bookstore or at the bookstore on the bookshelf tag by the course subject and number.
