Online BookstoreThe College Store, located in the Student Center, provides required textbooks, study materials, and supplies. Textbooks can also be purchased via the Online College Store. The College Store offers Coastal clothing as well as a selection of insignia merchandise, gifts, and electronics.

Important Info! With the state of North Carolina moving into Phase 2, The College Store has re-opened. There will only be 5 students allowed in at a time. We highly encourage social distancing for the protection of students and employees. The below info concerning online orders, rental returns, and instore buyback is still relevant until further notice.

Online Orders/Shipping: We are processing online orders from 8am-5pm Monday thru Thrusday, and 8am-3pm on Friday. UPS only comes to campus once a day to pick up outgoing shipments (usually around 9:30/10:00am),  if your order is placed/processed after that time, it will most likely ship the next business day. PLEASE DO NOT SELECT NEXT DAY AIR! It is literally impossible for UPS, and unforunately, there is no way to remove the option on the website.

Instore buyback is still currently suspended. Please see the textbook buyback tab for two vendors that will buy textbooks from students online. Instore buyback may be reinstated in the next few days. Stay tuned for more info on that. We will have an additonal vendor visting the store to purchase textbooks on Monday, June 1st and Tueday, June 2nd.

Rental Returns will be asked to be returned in the next two weeks. I will send an email out to everyone who rented a textbook. Students will not be charged a late fee.

Please call: (910) 938-6295 or (910) 938-6256 or email: John Mooney ( if you have any questions.

Bucks for Books - Textbook Buy BackBucks for Books – Texbook BuyBack

Due to COVID-19, the College Store has suspended its daily textbook buyback; however, listed below are links to two vendors that could potentially buyback your textbooks.  No preferential treatment or endorsement given.  It is recommended that you contact both vendors to determine your best option for selling.

10 Things that affect how much you get for your text books:

  1. Participation in buyback during specific dates posted
  2. Whether or not you are selling the textbook during the same semester in which you purchased it
  3. Whether or not your book is in the wholesale buyback guide
  4. Whether or not there is an overstock of your book, due to class cancellations or over ordering
  5. Whether or not the book publisher has changed the book edition
  6. Whether or not the book is still being used by the college
  7. The condition of the textbook
  8. Your place in the buyback line
  9. The quantity of your book needed for the store
  10. Whether or not the book you have is included on the IN DEMAND textbook list

FYI: Did you know that you could receive half of the new price, even if you bought the book used?

If the college store needs the book (it is on our IN DEMAND buyback book list), and you show up on buyback day before the quantity needed is reached, you will receive half of the new textbook price.

For example:

You buy a used History book for $50.00. The new ones sell for $75.00. At the end of the semester, you get up early, wait in line, and the book is on the IN DEMAND book list for a needed quantity of 60. If you reach the front of the line before the 60th textbook is received, you will be paid $37.50 for your textbook. If you originally paid $50.00 for the book and now receive $37.50 back, you essentially paid $12.50 for the book.
