The HTC-EP and HTC-BP course list for the upcoming term is under the on-line Campus Store tab on the campus store website.  We add the course information when we receive it from the instructor teaching the course.  If nothing is posted, it means we haven't heard from the instructor on his/her course material choice. 

Important:  The Campus Stores cannot be responsible for course materials purchased elsewhere  based on the posted booklist, as the book list changes frequently.  If you choose to purchase your course materials elsewhere, use caution.  Likewise, the Campus Stores will direct you to the official on-line book list if you call or request information about your course materials.  As the list changes frequently, we do not give course material information over the phone or send written documents. 

Finally, when you come to the Campus Stores for your course materials, we will help you find what you need.  However, you are ultimately responsible for assuring that you have the correct materials for your courses.  We can only take recently-purchased returns on wrapped bundles with non-violated access codes with your purchase receipt regardless of your method of payment.   Please keep your receipts as it is your proof of purchase.
