You can browse or purchase online using your course number(s) (eg. FMGT 1100, TELC APP Level 1). If you don’t know your course number(s), you can retrieve them by logging into your my.bcit.ca account and looking under the My Courses tab. If your course number does not appear at all, please go to class first, as it is likely no materials are required to purchase.
Approximately six weeks before your course(s) start. For example, if your course starts on April 7, you will be able to view and order course materials around the end of February. However, because course materials may change prior to term start and our return policy allows returns for one week from date of purchase, we do not advise buying your books early.
Please be aware that course materials are posted as requests are received from your instructors, so your course can show no materials today but have several listed tomorrow. Check the website often for additions and changes, and be sure to read the returns policy.
When your instructors select materials for your course, we update the information into our systems right away. We still have to order and price the materials or have the materials printed so we will not have it in stock for three or four weeks after first listing it (depending on its availability from the publishers). Also, sometimes it is not possible to have accurate pricing until the book arrives along with an invoice.
Orders are processed within 2 business days. After shipping, deliveries take about 2 business days within British Columbia. Transit times outside BC vary.
Extra processing time will be required during the weeks prior to and during September, January, and April Rush.
Online orders are ready for pick up 2–3 business days after your order is placed and will be held for 30 days. After this time, any unclaimed purchases will be refunded less the $3.95 transaction fee.
If you can’t make it into the Bookstore Annex before 4:00 p.m., select “Library after 4 p.m. pick-up Bldg SE14” as your shipping method at checkout. You will receive an e-mail confirmation and your order will be ready to pick up at the library front counter 2–3 business days after your order is placed. Check Library hours of operation.
