Spring 2021 Updates
Classes start in less than a week, so we wanted to share some updates with you all!
All purchases from the Bookstore will be online only to support our students’ and staffs’ safety. Please plan for your order to take 3 to 5 business days to be processed by our Bookstore staff to either be shipped or ready for curbside pickup. Many orders will be coming in during the first couple ofweeks of class, so please be patient with us and plan to order as early as possible. If you’re unsure how to order online, please follow this link to instructions on our website.
After you place your order, you will get an email informing you that we have received it. You will get a second email when your order is ready, which will let you know that your order has either been shipped or is ready for pickup. You can look upyour order’s status by logging into your account then going to track orders.You can look at the status of your most recent order from there.
Textbook Rentals for Fall 2020
Textbook Rentals for Fall 2020 were due January 5th. But you can return rentals until January 15th with only a $20 per book late fee. Late fees will be charged to your student account. Return your books to avoid further charges.You should have received an email on Sunday, January 10th, detailing any overdue books. If students have any additional questions regarding returns, please reach out to the Bookstore at [email protected]
You can see the return locations here, under “how to return my rental textbooks.” Rental returns will not be accepted after January 15th. You will be charged the full replacement cost of any non-returned books.
Financial Aid book charge opened on January 11th and will go through January 29th. If you have questions about Financial Aid, please look at ourSpring 2021 FAQ or reach out to Financial Aid at [email protected].
Truax Curbside Appointment Issues
We wanted to take a moment to acknowledge that we have had some technical issues with our Truax Curbside Pickup application in the last week. We apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused and want to let you know that we have been working very hard to develop a solution. We have switched sign up applications, and so far, it has been working well. We will keep students updated if there are any other changes.
As always, please reach out to The Bookstore if there is anything we can help with, at [email protected] or 608.246.6016.
If you have items that need to be returned to the college (such as rental textbooks, hotspots, or laptops), you can drop them off all in one stop at Drop Off Days!
As we start to get plans in line for purchasing items for the Spring 2021 semester, we would like to share some updates with you!
As the start of the Fall 2020 semester beings to wind down, we would like to update you on some changes that are going to be happening to the store. Due to the limited amount of staff and students on the Truax Campus, our hours have changed for the Fall Semester.
The Madison College Bookstore and Textbook Rental teams are excited to roll out the redesign of our website. The redesign has been in the works for some time, and we are grateful that we can launch a more accessible site during the pandemic.
