Greetings! We pass along our annual reminders to help you kick off the 2013-14 academic year:

Register for classes, see text titles, preorder your books for fall. You can see each course’s book list when you register for classes. Click on the “Books and Materials” link under the course description on the Garnet Gateway. After viewing required books and materials, you can connect to the bookstore’s website to preorder your books. We will pick them, charge your credit card and have the books ready for you when you arrive on campus!

Check our website for information on our text rental program.

This year, textbooks and other course-related materials are available at the start of the semester in the main bookstore. We strongly encourage you to check the costs of your materials via the Garnet Gateway so that you are prepared when you get to campus.

Credit cards and personal checks are accepted with a student picture ID and campus box number for identification. We cannot accept credit card numbers without the card physically present. However, if your parent/guardian or other bill payer would like to authorize use of a credit card number for text and course supply purchases only, they may fax (207-786-6119) or mail to the College Store (56 Campus Ave., Lewiston, ME 04240) a signed letter of permission with student’s name, credit card number, cardholder’s name, expiration date and cardholder’s daytime phone number. Remember that your parent or guardian’s credit card can be used when placing text orders on line!

It is important to note that your Bates College ID cannot be used as a credit or debit card in the College Store.

Be sure to familiarize yourself with the book return policy attached to your receipt. All returns require a cash register receipt, so make your text purchases carefully and hold on to your receipts!

Among our continuing services: International Student ID cards (ISIC) may be purchased at the College Store. Semester subscriptions to The New York Times will once again be offered at a reduced rate, Monday-Saturday.

New products (bright colors, great styles!) are arriving daily, so check our website for gift items, titles by Bates authors and current store events along with other helpful information. Find us here.

We look forward to seeing you in September!
