Located just off the main entrance of the Mund College Center, the College Store, operated by Barnes & Noble (B&N), provides a convenient place for students to purchase textbooks and other course materials. In addition, the College Store also offers LVC clothing and gifts, general reading books, school supplies, and gift cards.
College Store purchases may be made by cash, check, or LVC student charge account (minimum charge on a student charge account is $15), and the following credit cards: Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. Barnes & Noble gift cards are also hon- ored at the College Store.
Please note that student charge accounts are not itemized; it is the responsibility of the student to maintain their purchasing records and receipts. The charge is electronic and posts directly to the student account at the end of each month.
Store hours are posted in the store window as well as on the website. Special hours will be posted throughout the semester. The store adheres to the campus emergency closing proce- dure and will be closed or delayed if campus is closed or delayed due to inclement weather.
Policies and Proceedures
Textbooks are available for purchase in store or by visiting the College Store website (www.lvc.edu/collegestore
). Textbook options include new, used, rental, and digital books. All textbook orders require your exact course and section number, which can be accessed on MyLVC. If you have any questions regarding your textbook purchase, College Store staff members are available to assist you. It is important that books remain in their original condition until you are sure that you will retain them for the semester; shrink-wrapped books that have been unwrapped and new books that have been marked cannot be returned for a full refund.
Your textbooks can be ordered on the College Store website prior to the start of classes. When checking out, select the “Pick up in store” option; once the order is processed, a notification email will be sent to inform you that it is available for pick up at the College Store.
Textbook information is available on our website at www.lvc.edu/CollegeStore. We make every effort to have the correct information available prior to and during the registration process. However, course materials can be pre-ordered for classes that do not have detailed textbook information. The College Store will only retain textbooks through mid-terms of each semester. After that time, any required books can be special ordered.
Please read the following important information before returning a textbook at the College Store: A full refund will be given in our original form of payment if textbooks are returned during the first week of the semester with the original receipt.
After the first week of classes, an original receipt and a proof of schedule change is required for a full refund through the first 30 days of the semester. No refunds on textbooks will be given after the first 30 days of the semester.
No refunds will be given on unwrapped books or activated access codes.
Textbooks must be in original condition for a refund. Refunds or exchanges will not be accepted without the original receipt. If placing an online order, you will receive an email copy of the receipt as well as a paper copy with your order; either of these must accompany a re- turn of a textbook from an online purchase.
Used Book Buy Back
The College Store offers buyback on textbooks every day. However, during the week of finals, the College Store may offer up to 50 percent of the original selling price of the book if a professor has placed an order for the same textbook edition for the following semester. Books must be in sellable condition as determined by a member of the College Store staff and will not be bought if the book is damaged or necessary components are missing. If a book is not being used in the following semester, the store will offer the student fair market value for the textbook based on its condition.
General Reading Books and All Other Merchandise
For general reading books, a full refund will be given in your original form of payment if they are returned within 14 days of purchase with original receipt. No refunds or exchanges will be accepted without a receipt. The books must be in original condition.
For all other merchandise, a full refund will be given in your original form of payment with original receipt. Without a receipt, store credit will be issued at the current selling price.

Dining Services Policies
All resident students must present their Dutchman OneCard for admission into any of the dining facilities. The ID card is non-transferable. Only one meal exchange is allowed per meal period. Students can exit the dining hall and dine in the lounge adjacent to the dining hall, but must swipe their ID card once again when re-entering the dining hall. This is to protect against unauthorized entry, which will result in appropriate judicial/student conduct action. If you lose your card, contact the IT Department immediately to get a new card admin- istered as students can only enter three times without a card. There is a charge to replace a lost ID card.
Students are expected to maintain order and cleanliness in the dining facilities. Any student witnessed acting in a disruptive way in any dining facility will be asked to leave by dining services management. Public safety and student affairs staff will be notified immediately. The student(s) may lose their dining hall privileges for the remainder of the school year, or other appropriate action(s).
Guests of students are welcome to join them anytime in any of the dining facilities. In the Mund Dining Hall, students may use their meal wipes (no longer limited to non-student guests), Flex Dollars, or Cash/Credit to host their guest.
In an effort to maintain services for all students, administration, faculty, staff, and guests, Mund Dining Hall is either Dine In or Take Out, not both. We want all of our guests to get what they like. We just ask that you be mindful of waste and eat what you take as we serve more than 1,200 guests during each meal. If you eat in the dining room, you only can take one dessert or one piece of fruit to go. Please be advised that door checkers will be monitoring this very closely.
