Students have the option of purchasing textbooks at either campus bookstore or online. Through the online bookstore, students are able to check prices as well as purchase textbooks and course materials by instructor and course.
Purchasing Policy and Payment Options
Students purchasing textbooks at the campus bookstores are required to bring a copy of their schedule to aid in searching for textbooks. Textbook information, including ISBNs and pricing, are subject to change without notice. Changes will be posted as soon as the bookstore is made aware of them.
Northeast Iowa Community College is not liable for purchases made from outside sources. If you choose such a source, be sure to check their refund policy. Purchasing your materials from the NICC campus or online bookstore is the best way to avoid costly mistakes and late delivery.
VISA®, MasterCard® and Discover® can be used to purchase textbooks at the online bookstore. Online purchases will be shipped directly to the student.
The bookstore accepts cash, check, VISA®, MasterCard®, Discover® and applicable financial aid. Deadlines apply for charging textbooks to an outside agency or any type of financial aid. Students are encouraged to purchase all textbooks and course materials at the beginning of the term.
To obtain a refund, students must present the original cash register receipt or the financial aid charge slip showing the correct dollar amount for the textbook(s) being returned.
New textbooks must be in absolutely new condition (no markings, soiled spots, creases, scratches, etc.) Shrink-wrapped textbooks must have the wrap intact, including the original price tag. Deadlines apply each term for obtaining a refund. Please check with the bookstore for details.
