Students coming to the Bookstore should be aware that all CDC recommendations will be observed while shopping in person.  Store Hours are listed at the bottom of this page.

Online Bookstore

Students can continue to access the online bookstore by simply clicking on the bookstore link located on the left side margin of this page.   Once you're on the Barnes & Noble site, click on the campus where your class is being taught.  Sugar Land classes are being serviced by the Richmond Bookstore.  Online classes should be found under either campus selected.  After that, you should be able to type in your course and see what book has been adopted.  

Textbooks purchased online from the Barnes & Noble College Bookstore will be shipped once they arrive at the bookstore, to the address you give, or they will be available for in store pickup.   The bookstore will send you an email when your on-line ordered textbooks are available for you to pickup in the bookstore.  

Financial Aid Students

Wharton County Junior College students who have received financial aid are provided in-store credit only at the Wharton Campus and Richmond Campus Barnes & Noble bookstores.  This approved financial aid credit can be used for textbooks or supplies purchased in person or ordered on online.  If you are trying to pay for your online order and it shows that you don't have available funds, simply wait a few hours and try again.   Approved and funded financial aid is posted to the system 4 times a day, so if you'll wait till later in the day,  your approved funds might be posted and available.
