Online Orders

FedEx return labels will be provided so students can send books back to the Bookstore free of charge by the June 12 return date. To return books, log in to your rental account at comptonbookstore.com, located on the right and under the COVID-19 banner. Select "My Account," and then "Rentals," this will show a list of books you are renting. Select the box next to the books you would like to return. Follow the on-screen prompts to print your Packing List and your Pre-Paid Label. Once completed, simply box up your books and drop them at a FedEx location. When your books are received and successfully checked in, you will receive email confirmation. 

*Please be sure to include the packing list in your return package to ensure a successful book check-in.

You will also be receiving an email from us to the email address that is on file for your rental account outlining the fact that there will be a buffer period added to the rental return date before they begin to charge the collateral card on file. This buffer period will be roughly 15 days. Please do not wait until the end of this buffer period to send in your books.

Books returned after June 30, 2020 will accrue late fees.

The Compton College Bookstore offers textbooks for purchase, in addition to school supplies. The Bookstore accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover. Personal checks are accepted for the amount of purchase, dated for the date of purchase and presented by the account holder only; no parental or third-party checks accepted. Students are responsible for following the refund policy, found at the Bookstore and in the Student Life Office.

The Bookstore conducts "Textbook Buyback" throughout the semester, but the best timing for buybacks is the final weeks of each semester/term.. Students can receive up to 50 percent of the purchase price if the textbook has been requested for a future semester; the book is not sold as new-only (fill-in or perforated pages) and the Bookstore is in need of additional copies.

Textbooks may be purchased online at: bkstr.com/comptonstore.

Refund Policy

Merchandise must be in new condition, in a sealed package, clean and free of all markings and bearing all original tags. A 10 percent restocking fee may be assessed on all refunds. Textbooks can be returned for a full refund within the first week of the spring and fall semesters. Textbooks purchased for summer and winter terms have three days from the start of classes to return for a full refund. Textbooks must be in the same condition as purchased and must be accompanied by a register receipt for a full refund.
