Some textbooks can be pretty expensive. Textbook rentals are generally less than half of the cost of a new book. In order to rent textbooks, you'll have to provide a credit or debit card as security against the rental, and your card will only be charged if you do not return your rented books. Rentals are due for return the day after the last day of finals. In addition to textbook rentals most books are also available as new, used and as digital books to be either purchased or rented.
You may pre-order textbooks on the bookstore’s website, enmu.bncollege.com. The website can also be reached from enmu.edu/Bookstore. Orders placed online may be charged to a student’s account by choosing the SFA payment option at checkout. Online orders may be shipped to a student’s home or held at the bookstore for pick-up at the beginning of the semester. You can also order textbooks for the classes you are currently registered for through the portal.
You can pay for your items with cash, check or major credit card. Each semester there is also a period of time when you can charge books to your student account. This time period begins roughly three weeks before classes start and runs through the first week of classes. You'll need to present your ENMU ID in order to charge to your student account.
An original cash register receipt must accompany all returns. You can get a refund for books you purchased all the way up until the end of the first week of classes. If you drop a class, you can return the books for that class until the end of the drop/add period.
Gross Receipts Tax
There is no tax charged on textbooks. Normal tax is charged on supplies and other items purchased at the bookstore.
