The WITCC Bookstore is located at Entrance 1, across from IT. Students may purchase textbooks, supplies, clothing and novelty items at the bookstore or order them online for delivery or pick-up at bookstore.witcc.edu. Bookstore hours and return policies can also be found on the website.

Payment for bookstore merchandise is due at the time of the purchase. Accepted methods of payment are cash, check, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover. Students sponsored by an agency (JTP, DVRS, Promise Jobs, etc.) must have a written authorization from the agency before charges can be processed. Students receiving federal grants can charge against the balance remaining after tuition and fees. Sponsored students and students with federal grants can begin charging one week before the semester begins.

Rather than a physical textbook, some courses use digital content embedded into the course to provide an adaptive learning platform that minimizes the cost of the textbooks required for students. Costs of the digital content varies and is charged to the student through a course fee associated with the course. There is no tangible item that must be purchased through the bookstore.

If a student does not want to utilize this content, the student may opt-out and receive a refund on the charged fee. Opt-outs are only accepted within the first 10 days of the course and must be requested through the bookstore. Access to the digital materials are then removed and the student is responsible to find the required course materials by other means.
