Textbook Pre-Pack

NOTE: Pre-pack service is not available for the Fall 2020 semester.

Pre-Pack is a service the Bookstore provides to students during the Fall and Spring terms which gives you the opportunity to have your books pre-packaged and ready for pickup.

Pre-Pack works as follows:
  1. Fill out a pre-pack order form online using the course info on your schedule. You will have an opportunity to select new and used books, required only or optional texts, too.
  2. The Bookstore staff then processes the order by packaging the books and setting them aside. You will be emailed when it is ready for pickup.
  3. You arrive, skip the lines, choose to rent or buy, pay for your materials and you are on your way!

NOTE: This is NOT a method to have books shipped. To place your order to be shipped, go to https://bookstore.hvcc.edu.
