Textbook Purchasing for Fall 2020

High priority


For ordering your textbooks for the upcoming Fall 2020 semester, please carefully read the information below for obtaining your textbooks. 

Textbooks will be loaned to all Stevens Grant Students.  The process and distribution of these books will be announced by August 1.

  • All books must be returned, in good condition, at the end of the semester (or at the end of their use if needed beyond one semester).
  • Books that are not returned, will be charged to the student and a penalty fee will be implemented for all non‐returned books.
  • At the end of the semester a student may choose to purchase their books if they wish, at the regular purchase price based on the average value of the book.

All students NOT receiving the Stevens Grant for the Fall 2020 semester should carefully read the information below:

    1. Books may be purchased directly or online from the HACC Lancaster bookstore at:
