The College Store is always working to lower textbook prices to make them more affordable. We have partnered with several wholesalers for sourcing of some of our books to offer substantial savings on several of our titles. The College Store offers convenience - everything you need is in one place, friendly, knowledgeable staff, and we always guarantee the books we sell.
You can visit the college store to purchase or rent your textbooks as well as ordering online at www.etowncollegestore.com . For ordering online, use your schedule as a guide to select your courses from the dropdowns. Click on the ‘Compare Prices on Course Materials’ to see the stores options as well as other pricing and ordering options. Before buying your books from a competitor, please read the textbook disclaimer. One important item to note when you have completed your order your credit card or student account is NOT charged immediately. Charges occur after your online order is filled by college personnel.
When you order online you can choose to have books shipped to you for a fee or you can use our pick-up option. The pick-up option means your order will be filled and ready to pick up during move-in week in August. Ordering early means you get first pick of used books, when available. It also eliminates the worries of not having the textbooks you need when you come to campus. NOTE: If you order your books through the College Store, fulfillment of your online order will begin in late July. Your credit card will not be charged until your order is fulfilled. If you want us to hold your books until you come to campus, indicate Pick Up at Store as the shipping option. Student ID is required when you pick up your order.

Textbook Pricing & Payments
Although book expenses, obviously, vary depending upon your major, individual course choices and the requirements for those courses, you should expect to spend between $400 and $600 a semester for your books and supplies. Each dollar you spend on a new textbook is distributed in many ways, with most of your money going to the publisher. The College Store uses a portion to pay for the freight of the book, the salaries and benefits of its employees, and the expenses of operating the store. Another portion goes to the College to support the campus community in a variety of areas. The College Store actively seeks to obtain as many used books as possible, as they offer substantial savings to students by dealing with national used book wholesalers and now, sourcing from online sellers. However, a good source of used books is still our own students. If you choose not to keep a textbook as part of your permanent library, please consider selling it to the College Store during buyback at the end of each semester, so it can be "recycled" to another student looking for textbook savings. We accept cash, check, student I.D., Visa, MC, Discover, AMEX or gift card for payment of any textbook purchase.
We strive to have enough books for each student who wants to purchase their books from the College Store. To achieve this, we carefully review all the historic sales information available to us. This includes the enrollment number and, the sales history of both the book and the course. Our thorough examination process is used to determine the number of books that will fulfill the needs of every student who wishes to buy from the College Store. At the same time, we strive to reduce the number of books sent back to the publishers at the end of the semester.
