The Bookstore will remain open during construction for the Dickson Center roof and the atrium skylight. Entrances and exits will be subject to closures, but you may access the bookstore through alternative doors.

Textbooks are just the start at our on-campus and online shops

Our Sugar Grove or Aurora Downtown locations have fully-stocked bookstores with all the course supplies you need—and much more!

You'll find required textbooks and other essential items, including calculators, backpacks, art supplies, reference books and software. Show your school spirit with a wide variety of your favorite Chiefs wearables, from t-shirts to hoodies and hats. We even stock some of your favorite snacks for the midday pickup you crave.

The Waubonsee Bookstore also has an online bookstore. All our stores accept cash, checks, MasterCard, VISA, Discover and American Express credit and debit cards.

You may also choose to charge required books and supplies to your student account at the Waubonsee bookstore.

  • If you have a payment plan already in place, the bookstore charge will be added to your monthly payments. 
  • If the total amount for books and tuition is over $200, you may set up a payment plan.
  • For balances less than $200, please see our payment chart.
  • For orders placed online, choose Financial Aid as the payment option to charge your purchase to your student account.

Note: You are responsible for all charges on your student account. If you do not pay, a hold will be placed on your account.

Contact Student Accounts and Cashier with questions about charging materials to your account by email at, call (630) 466-5705 or live chat.

Finding the books you need

To learn what textbooks you'll need for any of the college's credit courses, select your course section from the online schedule or our online bookstore.

For Workforce Development/Professional Development courses, check individual course descriptions in the printed or online schedule to see if supplies are included in the course fee or need to be purchased from the bookstore. We also fill special orders for single copies of books or supplies not normally stocked (requires payment in advance at list price). Sorry, no refunds on special orders.

Eco-friendly Merchandise

We stock recycled notebooks, pencils, highlighters, pens, folders, index cards, report covers, paper and more.
