1. What are Distance Education Courses? Distance Education courses lead to earned credit toward a degree offered on-line through Olympic College and our affiliate educational institutions.
2. Where do I purchase my books? For classes taken at Olympic College, textbooks can be purchased online or at the campus bookstores in Bremerton, Poulsbo and Shelton. During the Summer the Poulsbo and Shelton campuses are closed for break. Check our website for store hours. The main phone number is: 910.582.7026.
If you order books online, they will be shipped to you at an additional fee. We will not hold these books for you, this is not a reservation service.If you order a book that is not in stock at the time of your order, it will be your responsibility to reorder that book or books when they are in stock.
****RETURN POLICY FOR BOOKS BOUGHT ONLINE**** When you need to return a textbook bought online, you must first follow the store's regular returns policy. Textbooks may be returned for full credit for the first five days of the semester. A dated cash register receipt is required for a refund. New books must be in the original selling condition. A full refund cannot be given on textbooks that have been written in, had the plastic removed, or been damaged in any way,
Students who drop a course may return their books within 48 hours after the course is dropped provided the Bookstore has not started processing returns. A drop/add slip signed by the registrar and professor and a cash register receipt is required. Returns processing starts 4 weeks after classes begin in the fall and 2 weeks after classes begin in the summer semesters.
Secondly, you must complete a Return Merchandise Authorization form. This RMA must be sent to the OCBookstore for approval. You will then be contacted by the Bookstore with a RMA number. The RMA number must be displayed on the outside of your box when you send the book(s) back. All returms must arrive at the OCBookstore (only Bremerton???)and meet regular guidelines. Books that are sent back without a RMA number will be held for pickup.
