JJC Bookstore

Due to the campus closure, the JJC Bookstores are closed.

We hope everyone is safe and healthy during this challenging time. Please refer to the guidance below on modified bookstore operations:

Textbook Rentals

Spring 2020 textbook rental return date is now May 22, 2020. Please use your rental books through the end of the semester. Updates or additional information will be posted on the Rental Books link. 

Access to Course Materials

All of JJC spring semester courses will be completed online through the rest of the semester starting the week of March 29. In response to COVID-19, many publishers and e-book vendors have a formal response to help students who do not have access to their textbooks.

The JJC Bookstore is asking you first contact your professor if you do not have your materials to see if they have worked on an alternative solution for students without a text. Many of our faculty are working with us, the publishers, and our partners to make e-books available to students who are impacted. 

E-book vendor links

Below are links to some e-book vendors, but please check with your instructor first. 

If your instructor is using a Cengage book visit the publisher's site directly for information on trial subscriptions at https://www.cengage.com/covid-19-support/student/. You can visit our e-book partner's information at solve.redshelf.com. If you cannot locate your e-book there, also try VitalSource Helps.

Book Buy Back

Since we are not able to buy back books while we closed under the state mandate, you may want to consider online options rather than wait for the bookstore to reopen its physical stores. 

While we do not have an extension list of possible websites, we do have a link to our wholesale partner at nebook.com/virtualsellback.

Refund Policy

Our full refund policy is available on the Customer Service link. This COVID-19 response is not meant to issue refunds on physical books, but to get e-books to students who have no other option during these times. 

For courses with a start/re-start date of March 30, 2020, the 14-day refund policy on materials bought in-store or at bookstore.jjc.edu will begin when we physically re-open for business. 

Please email bookstore@jjc.edu with any questions.

Stay safe & healthy.
