The College Bookstore is located in the Continuing Education and Training building. Students may purchase all their new and used books, as well as supplies, for all their Kaua‘i CC classes. Food is also available.
Students enrolled in distance classes may purchase books from the “home” campus. The “home” campus is the campus from where the course originates. For example, if you live on Kaua‘i and take a distance course offered at Kapi‘olani CC, Windward CC, or UH Hilo campus, you need to go to those campus websites to purchase your books. Go to the bookstore homepage website at https://www.bookstore.hawaii.edu/kauai and choose the campus your course is offered from and proceed from there. If you prefer a phone order, you may call each respective campus bookstore at the contact number listed on their website. Students may also visit this website to purchase Kaua‘i books online.
Bookstore gift cards are also available for purchase at the bookstore. These gift cards are redeemable at any of the bookstores in the UH System.
Computer hardware and software are available for purchase at the bookstore. Faculty, staff, and students currently registered at any of the UH campuses including students registered in the OCET non-credit classes qualify to purchase. Your registration slip may be required as proof of registration. Call the bookstore at (808) 245-8273 if you have any questions.
A full book refund is given if the book is returned within the first week of the semester. Only a 75% refund is given if a book is not in a saleable condition (new books that are returned marked/soiled). A register receipt is required for ALL refunds! After the first week, all sales are final. Summer session refunds must be made within 24 hours. Exception may be made on a case-by-case basis.
CA$H PAID FOR BOOKS! During the final exam week that occurs twice a year in May and December, students can sell their books back to the Bookstore. Signs are posted around campus prior to the buyback announcing the days and time. See the bookstore bulletin board for more information on buyback.
Outside of those two times, you may also visit the Bookstore Website for our Online Buyback: https://www.bookstore.hawaii.edu/kauai/sell_main.asp
