General Merchandise and Textbook Layaway Program

Have you seen some items in the Bookstore that you would like to include in your holiday gift giving, but can't afford all at once?  Visit our Customer Service counter, ask for a general merchandise layaway plan, and we will help you set up a plan to make payments on these special items. Items must be paid off and picked up by December 20, 2013.

The Waubonsee Bookstore will be continuing our Textbook Layaway Program for fall semester, beginning July 15, 2013. Students have the ability to choose textbooks for the fall term from any available stock, secure the books in layaway with a small down payment, and then pick up the books once they have paid the full balance. The Textbook Layaway Program allows students to reserve used textbooks when they are more likely to be available. Students will then be able to spread out the payments up until August 16, 2013.

Terms and conditions apply.  To find out more, contact our Customer Service at (630) 466-2548 today.

Textbook Rental

Waubonsee Bookstore is proud to announce that we have expaned our rental selection to more than 120 titles for the fall 2013 semester. These titles are available to rent in-store as well as online. Students now have the option to purchase a textbook new or used (when available), or rent for a nominal fee. The rental fee is often up to 40-60 percent cheaper than the new retail price. All textbook rentals will require a student id number, a credit card, and acceptance of our rental agreement. Check out our online bookstore for more information.

More Digital Textbooks (E-Texts)

The Waubonsee Bookstore offers digital textbooks through CourseSmart for the tech-savvy/price conscious student on a rental basis. Please contact us at 630-466-2478 for a list of available titles. View our e-text FAQ for more information.
