How to purchase textbooks

Fall 2024:

Textbooks will be loaned to all Stevens Grant Students.  

  • Grant student Gen. Ed. textbooks may be picked up on Monday, August 19 2024 through Wednesday, August 21, 2024 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Mellor Auditorium, 2nd floor room 210. All students must come with a college ID at the time of pickup.
  • All Gen. Ed. books must be returned, in good condition at the end of the semester (or at the end of their use if needed beyond one semester). 
  • Books that are not returned, will be charged to the student and a penalty fee will be implemented for all non‐returned books.
  • At the end of the semester a student may choose to purchase their books if they wish, at the regular purchase price based on the average value of the book.

All students NOT receiving the Stevens Grant for the Fall 2024 semester should carefully read the information below:

  1. Books may be purchased directly or online from the HACC Lancaster bookstore at: https://bookstore.hacc.edu/ under “Textbooks” click on “Buy/Rent Books” then select the “Select a Campus link” choose the “Stevens Fall 2024” link from the drop down menu.
  2. Next, find the classes you are scheduled for the Fall 2024 semester. General education classes are listed under their subject (i.e. CHEM ‐ Chemistry; ENGL ‐ English; etc.). Once you have chosen the appropriate department, course number and section (choose “ALL”), “Add Course to List.” Repeat the process to add additional courses. Once you have gone through all the courses, click the red “Get you Books” tab on the right, you will see a list of all the textbooks displayed next, choose the books to add to your cart and then purchase.
  3. Textbooks may be picked up at the HACC Lancaster Bookstore and/or delivered to your home address.
  4. A credit card must be used to pay for your purchase at the time of selection online.
  5. Hours for the bookstore can be located on this same page.

Textbooks may be purchased from other suppliers as well.

When ordering from the HACC website where multiple editions of the same book are listed, this means that the instructor has approved for several editions of the same book and you may purchase the edition you prefer.

Cengage Unlimited is an online service for textbooks. The charge for the service is a yearly charge of $170.00 with the charges split between the Fall & Spring semesters. The fall billing will be $85.00 and the remaining balance of $85.00 will be charged on the spring billing. Students in the Pre-Major program will be charged $85.00 for the year.

Students whose technical programs are using Cengage Unlimited will be provided access instructions on the first day of classes. NOTE: Students in a MATH 126 class will automatically have access to that textbook as well.
