Curbside pickup at WCC Bookstore for Fall

The WCC Bookstore is offering curbside pickup for the Fall 2020 semester from August 17 to September 25.  The Student Center Building including the Bookstore will remain closed, but an area directly outside the Bookstore will be setup and available for you to pick up your order.  Order books online or through the bookstore link in your MyWCC account.  Once the order is processed and ready for pick up, you will receive an email to sign up for a time to pick up your order. 

If you have Winter or Spring/Summer rental returns or want to sell books to the bookstore, please make an appointment via email at [email protected].  After you have a confirmed appointment please arrive at the pickup location at your designated time. Please follow the signs once you arrive on campus to drive to the pickup location. See this map for the pickup location and parking. 

Please wear a mask, practice social distancing, and follow safety protocols while you are on campus.

If you have questions, please email the bookstore at [email protected].

Fall 2020

All book orders for Fall semester will occur online and will ship directly to the student address on file with the bookstore or provided at checkout. Because order fulfillment may be coming from different places, you may receive more than one shipment.

While delivery times have improved in recent months, due to COVID-19 students are strongly encouraged to order books as early as possible or to choose digital options when available.  The college and the bookstore have worked together to provide as many titles in digital format as possible.  Digital options are being added as they become available. 

At this time, we estimate that standard shipping times range from three to five days after your order is processed.  Most orders are processed within 24 hours from the time the order is placed.

If you have any bookstore-related questions, the best way to reach the bookstore is via email:  [email protected].  The bookstore can also be reached at 734-973-3594.  Bookstore staff are available to be reached at this number between 8am to 1pm Monday through Friday at this time.

We understand that these are difficult and uncertain times and that can make your student experience challenging.  We are here to assist you in any way we can.  If you have any questions, and would like to speak with someone at the college, please email [email protected] or call 734-973-3517.

Winter and Spring 2020 Semesters Returns and Buybacks

For book rental returns, students should go to to access a prepaid UPS shipping form that can be printed at no cost to students. Packages can be dropped at any UPS drop off point (find one near you). Replacement/non-return fees will not be incurred until the start of Fall 2020 semester on August 31.

For students planning to return their books directly to the store, the college and the bookstore are in the process of determining a safe, convenient process for returning rental books as well as selling back books. Students will typically receive the best price for their books by selling them directly back to the campus bookstore. Alternatively, the bookstore has set up a wholesale buy-back option through, a Barnes & Noble-owned online source. Watch for details coming to your email account directly from the bookstore. This page will be updated regularly with new information as it becomes available.
