Course Materials Agreement
A. Course and Textbook Information
Textbook listings are accurate to the best of our knowledge on any given date and are subject to change without notice. Harford Community College and the College Store are not responsible for textbooks purchased elsewhere based on textbook information posted on HCC's web site. Textbooks purchased in error from The College Store at Harford Community College are returnable or exchangeable based upon the posted Return policy
Pricing is subject to change without notice. We cannot guarantee the availability of used books, so all totals are calculated using new prices and represent the maximum that you may be charged (based upon prices in effect when you placed your order). Changes in textbook prices and the availability of used books occur throughout the day and you will be charged the price that is in effect when your order is processed and shipped.
B. Order Processing
When placing your order, you can choose whether you prefer used or new textbooks. If your textbooks are not available in the condition that you request, we may substitute a textbook of a different condition. This may cause your order total to change without notice.
When you submit your order, the amount shown on your order confirmation is encumbered on your credit card. This encumbrance reserves funds for the transaction, but a charge is not made. If we do not process the transaction with a few days, this encumbrance is removed from your charge card. When your order is actually processed and prepared for shipment, your credit card will be charged for the actual amount of the final transaction (including changes due the used book availability, and back-ordered or canceled items.)
We will make every effort to ship your order within 1 business day provided the order is received by 9:00 am and all ordered items are in-stock
In the event that the only part of the order is in stock, we may choose to wait until all items are in-stock before shipping. We will inform you of this by way of email and give you additional options of shipping your items separately (additional shipping charges may apply) or canceling the back ordered item(s). Shipping via FedEx: $9.50 for the first item and $1.00 for each additional item. If you choose FedEx as your shipping option, you will receive a confirming email containing the FedEx tracking number for your shipment.. The receipt of an e-mail order confirmation does not constitute the acceptance of an order or a confirmation of an offer to sell. The College Store reserves the right, without prior notification, to limit the order quantity on any item and/or refuse service to any customer. Verification of information may be required prior to the acceptance of any order.
