You can also submit your order here. Use the TEXTBOOK button to search by class or the search box to find a specific book.

*If you wait until you've moved onto campus to order your books and select in-store pickup, please wait until you receive the "Your Order is Ready for Pickup" e-mail before proceeding to the bookstore.

Important Information

  1. Returns/Refunds: Summer deadline is Monday, May 17, 2021 and the Fall deadline Monday, August 30, 2021. DO NOT open shrink-wrapped packages or access any online access codes until you are sure about purchase.
  2. Safety and Convenience: Beat the traffic and stay safe-have your books shipped to your home before you move to campus.
  3. Savings: Choose the format that you prefer. Remember, used copies are 25% cheaper. Rental and digital pricing is based on the demand of each individual title (see available format prices on our website).

  4. Payment: Your parents have the option to pay for your textbooks and can provide your name for pick-up if they do not have books shipped to home.
  5. TIP: Use your Duquesne email address when placing orders to avoid any confusion for you and your parents (especially if there are updates about your order and when the rentals are due for return at the end of the semester).
  6. Rental Returns: Return your rentals to the bookstore or ship them back for a small fee ($5 UPS flat fee shipping label available for any quanity of books, fee applies to each label printed).
  7. Peace of Mind: If a professor or department changes course material, we will work with them and with you on refunds.
