FAQs Regarding Course Materials


What are my options for Course Materials?
Gettysburg College Bookstore offers a wide selection of new and used textbooks for purchase and/or rent.

How much can I save with used textbooks or by renting?
As much as 50% off new prices with used textbooks and as much as 80% off new prices by renting.

What is a Bundle?
Professors may require multiple items for a course: textbook, web access code, work book, clicker, etc. To keep the cost down, materials are ‘bundled’ together, wrapped and sold for one, low price.

Do all of the foreign languages have a Bundle?
Most of the entry level foreign language courses utilize a single bundle (book, access code, workbook, etc.) for two semesters. This saves students significantly over the year.

Can I rent a Bundle or purchase the materials used?
Since most Bundles contain a web access code, they are only available to purchase new.

What if I opened my Bundle, can I return it?
Bundles are labeled NOT RETURNABLE IF OPENED for the web access cards and components. Once the bundle is opened it is not returnable.

What if I opened my Bundle and exposed/used the web access code, can I return it?
Bundles are labeled NOT RETURNABLE IF OPENED for the web access cards and components. Once the code is exposed and/or accessed the bundle is not returnable.

Can I buy my Bundle anywhere else?
The majority of bundles offered at the Bookstore are specifically designed by our professor and uniquely created for Gettysburg College.
