EFSC Campus Bookstores

The EFSC Bookstore is your one-stop shop for new, used, rental and electronic textbooks, as well as college supplies, clothing, graduation regalia, and gifts. On-campus EFSC Bookstores have reopened on the Cocoa, Melbourne and Palm Bay Campuses, with added walk-in hours at the end and beginning of terms to facilitate textbook pick-up and rental returns. The Titusville Bookstore is currently closed and students should shop online or visit the Cocoa store. (See below and Locations & Hours box for important access details). To adhere to social distancing requirements, only 20 people will be permitted in each store at a time; please be prepared to wait outdoors in the event of high customer volume.

Important Location Details and Course Material Information

  • Students are automatically opted in to the the First Day Inclusive Access Program (FDIAP), which provides access to discounted materials for select courses through Canvas. Materials are billed to your student account as part of registering for the eligible course(s). If your course is part of the program, that will be reflected in Canvas. If you do not wish to participate in the FDIAP savings program, you must opt out during the first week of classes.

  • Textbooks and other course materials can be ordered online at the same price as the merchandise available in-store, with an approximate turnaround time of two days. Be sure to have your course schedule on hand, as you will need course numbers to find the correct books.

  • All orders over $75 will receive free ground shipping. You can also choose to pick up your online order in-store.

  • Online order pick-up will be available on all four campuses (check the Locations and Hours box on this page for more detailed information, and see the next bullet point for information on the need for an appointment at the Titusville Bookstore). To pick up an order, you will need either your confirmation email or a valid picture ID.

  • Online order pick-up and other bookstore services on the Titusville Campus are often available by appointment only. Please email or call 321-433-5055 to schedule a Titusville appointment. Check the Locations and Hours box for details about added walk-in availability during the start of Spring Term. Online order pick-up on all other campuses will continue to be available on a drop-in basis during regular operating hours.

Additional Information

Required Course Materials List

At least 45 days prior to the first day of class, EFSC posts a list of the materials required for each course offered during the upcoming term. This is in compliance with Florida Statute 1004.085.

The list includes the International Standard Book Number (ISBN) or other identifying information for each required textbook, as well as the title, all listed authors and publishers, the edition number, the copyright date, and the date of publication.

Payment Methods

All EFSC Bookstore locations and the online store accept the following forms of payment:

  • Credit Cards: Mastercard/Visa/Discover/American Express
  • Barnes & Noble Gift Cards
  • Student Financial Aid - Book Vouchers (for select items; "Student Financial Aid" is also available as a payment choice online )

Cash for Books

The EFSC Bookstore buys back used textbooks every day, and this buy-back process is available online during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The best time to sell back used books is when final exams begin. The Bookstores will pay you up to 50% of the book’s selling price if professors have assigned it for the next term and if the Bookstore is not overstocked. If the book does not meet these criteria, its buy-back price is determined by the current national demand.

Study guides and workbooks must be in like-new condition, without any writing on the pages. All other books must be in good condition. Some books have little or no monetary value; one-time use, out-of-print books, and old editions are not in national demand and will not be purchased. A valid student ID is required to process all buy-back transactions.

Refund Policy

  • A full refund will be issued to your original form of payment if textbooks are returned during the first week of classes with an original receipt.
  • With proof of a schedule change and an original receipt, a full refund will be issued to your original form of payment during the first 30 days of classes.
  • Unwrapped, loose-leaf books or activated eBooks are not eligible for a refund.
  • Textbooks must be in their original condition.
  • No refunds or exchanges without an original receipt.
General Reading Books, Software, Audio, Video and Small Electronics

  • Opened software, audio books, DVDs, CDs, music and small electronics may not be returned. They can be exchanged for the same item, if defective.
  • Merchandise must be in its original condition.
