Faculty choose the textbooks each semester. A textbook request along with the number of students expected in the class is given to the UNT Bookstore.
The UNT Bookstore stocks all books required by the academic departments. Texts are shelved numerically by course number and section number. Make sure you have the correct information to avoid purchasing unnecessary or incorrect books.
Used textbooks are stocked for all courses if available. You will generally save 25 percent by buying used books.
Textbooks can be returned for a full refund with the original receipt and in their original condition within the first seven days of classes. New textbooks must remain in the original shrink-wrap and the seal cannot be broken on any access codes or CDs. All refunds will be given in their original form of payment. If a student drops a course they have 30 days from the first day of classes to refund their books with their drop receipt and original receipt.
Unfortunately, books are often stolen and used by someone else or sold at buy back. When you are sure you will not be refunding your book put an identifying mark in the book - either your name or student ID number on several pages. This will help in identifying your book if it is stolen.
If your book is stolen, contact the UNT Bookstore and the University Police immediately. If you can identify your book, there is a good chance that it may be recovered.
The UNT Bookstore will buy textbooks every day it is open. Books the faculty have chosen for the next semester(s) will be purchased by the bookstore at half of the new price (whether you bought it new or used) while the bookstore has a need for the books. The book must be in satisfactory condition. Books that have a national market value will be purchased at that rate even if they are not used at UNT again.
