Special Announcement: Why Wait in Line at the Bookstore?

Published: August 3, 2011

Students who have anticipated aid in excess of paying their tuition and fees have three ways to purchase their books and supplies up to $650.00, for the upcoming fall semester:

Option 1: Beginning Wednesday, August 10, 2011, students may order books and supplies online through the TNCC bookstore.  Go to www.efollett.com; pick Virginia then Thomas Nelson Community College. Choose the campus on which the class is being held.  The Hampton Bookstore carries textbookss for all campuses (Hampton, Historic Triangle and Distance).  The Historic Triangle (HT) Bookstore in Williamsburg only stocks the textbookss for the HT campus.  A student ID number is required to place the order.

When ordering online students have the option to have their order shipped to their home or the order may be picked up at the bookstore.  A shipping charge up to $19.99 will be deducted from the student’s financial aid.  The pick-up option will remain open until the first day of class or until storage space is no longer available.

Option 2: The ability to rent textbooks is available online and in the store.  Students may save up to 50% by renting selected textbooks.  A valid credit card is required to insure the textbook is returned in good condition.  The credit card will only be charged if the book(s) is not returned or is damaged. Please register at www.efollett.com.

Option 3: If in-person shopping is preferred, students can still go to the bookstores to purchase books and supplies.  The dates for this option are:

  • Nursing and Dental Hygiene: August 15
  • Last Name: H-N: August 16
  • Last Name: O-S: August 17
  • Last Name: T-Z: August 18

Note:  All bookstore charges for 16-W, 8-W1, 8-W2. 5-W1, 5-W2, 5-W3 and Dynamic-dated sessions must occur during the charge dates listed above.  These dates are the only times that students may charge books with financial aid, regardless of when their classes begin.
