Remember, some grants and financial aid allow you to charge classroom supplies and apply money to your SRC ID Cards!
We ask that in order to expedite all book sales or rentals, students have their College issued student ID ready to present at the time of sale.

Students charging books against Financial Aid: It is important that you pick up all books that you need for the semester before the first end of charging date for the semester. Some agencies only allow for one billing and this will ensure that we are able to get needed materials in your hands.​​​​​​​​

Bookstore Refunds

Books may only be returned for refunds during the charge periods listed above. All returns must be accompanied by a receipt.


The Bookstore provides required textbooks and classroom supplies for students. The Bookstore sells textbooks for courses for which the instructors have required or made optional. Used books are available when possible. There are currently three ways in which you may purchase books:
1. You may come to the Bookstore with a copy of your schedule. Select books yourself, or a member of the Bookstore staff will be happy to help you when possible.
2. You may call the Bookstore to have your books shipped to you. You must use a credit card to pay for phone orders. Shipping charges will be added to your order.
3. You may buy your books online!

If you will be charging your books to a grant or scholarship, you may begin doing this one week before the day that classes begin.

Buy Back Policy: The Spoon River College Bookstore conducts textbook buy back at the end of each term during final exams. Because of the staggered starting and ending times of summer classes, buy back will be conducted for each class on its final day of instruction. Books being returned must be in salable condition. Proof-of-purchase is NOT necessary to return books during buy back. The bookstore reserves the right to issue cash, or mail the student a check, at their discretion, for all books they buy back.

Return Policy: Proof-of-purchase must accompany ALL returns. The bookstore reserves the right to issue cash, or mail the student a check, at their discretion, for all returns.

  • If a class is cancelled: Students will receive a full refund on books that are in salable condition. This means new books must be unmarked and undamaged in any way. Books shrink-wrapped with manuals, CD ROM, and/or software must be returned un-opened in order to receive full credit. Used books must be in salable condition. Workbooks, lab manuals, and study guides, which have been written in, cannot be returned at any time.
  • If a class is dropped: Refunds will be determined on the basis of the college's current tuition refund policy.​
