We are now the HCC College Store!

In order to better serve our students, HCC has moved to online-only book purchasing. Effective Intersession and Spring 2017, textbooks will be ordered online through our partner, MBS Direct. The HCC Bookstore is now the HCC College Store, your place to buy pens, notebooks and other supplies. You can also find assistance with book orders and related questions.

ORDERING: Intersession orders can be placed beginning December 7. Spring orders can be placed beginning December 12.

SHIPPING: Students who order between January 12-26 will receive free shipping on orders of $99 or more. Want to order earlier? Between December 7 and January 11, shipping is available at the reduced cost of $4.95 for the first item and $1.50 per additional item. 

FINANCIAL AID: Students eligible for financial aid book advances will receive an email from MBS Direct with a book advance ID number to use for online purchases.  Students who don't have access to a computer at home can order books using one of the computers that will be available in DON 154 beginning January 3. 

SUPPLIES: The HCC Bookstore will become the HCC College Store, and will stock a range of merchandise, including notebooks, pens, office supplies, art supplies, computer products and HCC apparel, such as tee-shirts and sweatshirts.

LOCATION: Because the Campus Center will be undergoing renovation, effective January 3, the HCC College Store will be temporarily located in DON 154. 

BUYBACK: Book buyback and rental returns for fall 2016 will be conducted in our current location on the lower level of the Campus Center.

If you have questions, concerns, or comments, please contact us at 413.552.2521. We look forward to serving you during this transition and beyond!
