The Bookstore will be buying your used
texts from January 5th -13th 8:30 am - 5:00 pm. The Bookstore pays 55% of the new price of
your book, provided it is being used in the upcoming term. Check the Spring booklist to see whether your book has been chosen by Capilano Faculty for
use again this term. If your book is not being used, the Bookstore can
still offer a "wholesale" rate for your book, usually between 10%-
30% of its new price, as the book will be shipped to the U.S.
Notice: Bookstore web orders will be accepted up until Thursday December 22nd at 4:00 pm. Orders placed by this time will be shipped on December 23rd, and will be delivered by UPS over the Christmas period on the next available business day. Ordering will not be possible between December 23rd and noon on Monday January 2nd 2017. Book information for each course can be viewed during this period however. After January 2nd orders may be placed, and books will be delivered withing 2-3 business days.
You can view your books by visiting the
Bookstore Online. We will fill your order with your
preference of new or used books if available, and have them delivered to your
home within 2-4 business days of placing your order. Delivery to residents in
rural areas may take longer. After ordering online, you will receive a
confirmation message to confirm that we have received your book order. You card
is not charged at that time but charged later on when we are ready to pick,
pack, and ship your books. If used books are not available for your order they
will be substituted for new books. If you don't want to receive substitutions
please place a note in the note field of your order stating that you do not
want to accept a substitution of a new book if the used is not available.
The online ordering system does not accept pre-paid
credit cards or Visa debit cards. We do not ship to P.O. Box numbers. We only
ship to addresses with a street address. If you will not be home to sign for
your parcel it is best to ship it to your work address where there will be
someone there to sign for the parcel. If you received a door knocker from UPS,
It is your responsibility to call the number on the door knocker to arrange for
the delivery of your books.
If you want to review the assigned
books for the current term you can also look up the courses that you'll
take at our Bookstore Online. You won't be
asked to purchase anything until you are ready. One thing to note, if you see
that a book has N/A (not available) listed beside it, the book has not
arrived at the Bookstore yet, and you won't be able to purchase it until
it is in stock. Very useful, if you want to know whether to come into the store
to do in person shopping or not!
You can obtain a personalized booklist
from the Capilano University Registration page.
While registering for courses, follow the Textbook link at the bottom and
you will access a page with a list of books for your courses that you
can view or purchase. You may see some courses without books, and
sometimes the books you'll need won't be ordered
until closer to the start of term. You can come back to the Registration
page anytime to see if there have been updates to what you will need to
