Please check the end of your cash register receipt for the last return date.
  2. Textbook Rentals are not refundable and are due back to the store during finals week each semester. If textbooks are not returned, your student Datatel account at Merced College will be put on hold until the book(s) are paid for.
  3. All sales are final on SALE items.
  4. Books being returned for a refund must be in the same condition in which they were purchased! This means no bent corners, scratched covers, pages written on, broken spines, and so on. Do not mark in your books or remove the shrink wrap until you are positive that you will be keeping the book and the class is not cancelled.
  5. Study aids (such as Bar Charts and Review Guides) and Access Codes for courses are NOT refundable regardless of condition.
  6. If you purchase an access code - please be sure you will need it before you purchase it because they are not returnable.

  12. We no longer accept personal checks. This policy goes into effect June 1, 2009. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but due to a growing problem with some personal checks being returned because of non-sufficient funds has forced us to install this policy.
