Special Message: The Main Campus Bookstore is open to the public but all customer must follow campus wide COVID-19 protocols. You can opt-to choose shipping for an order, but do note, for financial aid orders, we only ship to the address on file. Please see the side bar for current store hours.

Use the "Textbook Look-up" tool to find the course materials for your course and section. All prices subject to change and course material refunds must be completed 14 days from class start and items must be in their original sealed packaging. PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST 7-10 DAYS TO RECEIVE A PACKAGE. Every order must go through the register system in store, therefore there are NO instantaneous codes. Do NOT place an order if you need access right away, try jjc.redshelf.com, our e-book partner's site that takes credit cards only. The JJC Bookstore does not process orders Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Holidays, during college break/recess, and after operational hours during business days. The JJC Bookstore does NOT replace lost or stolen packages. If you are not comfortable with shipping at your own risk, choose in-store pick-up. Please note, when using a credit card, the total amount will be a pre-authorization. When the JJC Bookstore finalizes the sale through the registers, the pre-authorization may take up to 15 business days to "drop off" after the sale is completed and the actual completed sale amount has posted.
