Important Information

  1. Returns/Refunds: Spring deadline is Friday, January 21, 2022. DO NOT open shrink-wrapped packages or access any online access codes until you are sure about purchase.
  2. Safety and Convenience: Beat the traffic and stay safe-have your books shipped to your home before you move to campus.
  3. Savings: Choose the format that you prefer. Remember, used copies are 25% cheaper. Rental and digital pricing is based on the demand of each individual title (see available format prices on our website). Rentals can be considerably cheaper, but require that you promptly return them at the end of the semester.
  4. Payment: Parents have the option to pay for your textbooks and provide your name for in-store pick-up, unless they have the books shipped to your home.
  5. TIP: Use your Duquesne email address when placing orders to avoid any confusion for you and your parents (especially if there are updates about your order and when the rentals are due for return at the end of the semester).
  6. Rental Returns: Return your rentals to the bookstore or ship them back for a small fee ($5 UPS flat fee shipping label available for any quanity of books. The fee applies to each label printed).
  7. Peace of Mind: If a professor or department changes course material, we will work with them and with you on refunds.

*All staff and customers are required to wear appropriate face coverings at all times.
