Purchase textbooks:

The Summit Center and the University Store have made it possible to purchase your textbooks without having to travel to Warrensburg. At the start of each semester, the Summit Center's branch of the University Store opens for a limited time. Students can purchase textbooks for classes that are held at the Summit Center. If a student requires an additional textbook, or if the Summit Center's branch of the University Store is closed, a student may also purchase their textbooks by calling the University Store (1-800-330-7689) or visiting their website. Students must request that their textbooks be delivered to the Summit Center, and the University Store will then courier the textbooks to the Summit Center at no charge. Before coming to the Summit Center to pick up any materials you are expecting, please call 816-347-1612 to ensure they have arrived.

End of term book returns:

At the end of the semester, the Summit Center also provides a convenient location to return your textbooks. The Summit Center accepts both rental and buy-back books in accordance with the University Bookstore's return policy. The Summit Center will courier the books to the main campus and the University Bookstore will credit the student's account with any buy-back money the student is entitled to. Please contact the University Store at 1-800-330-7689 if you have any questions.
