New England College has a great bookstore centrally located in the Simon Center. For flexibility and affordability, new and used textbooks, as well as digital and rental options are available. New England College gear, gift items, basic school supplies and sundries make this a popular spot for students, families, NEC employees and visitors. Health and beauty items, commencement caps and gowns, film developing and dry cleaning services are also available.
Many items can be ordered online from the campus bookstore and can be shipped or held for pickup at the store. Personal checks with valid NEC I.D./driver’s license, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover are all accepted.

Textbook Return Policy
Textbooks may be returned within the first week of classes up to the end of the add/drop period or within two business days if purchased thereafter. The sales slip must accompany a return and books must be in original purchase condition. Rental books can be refunded within the add/drop period and must be checked in to the bookstore by the last day of final exams.
The bookstore will buy back textbooks year-round. Books must be current editions, in resalable condition with no water damage, pages missing, or workbook pages completed. At the end of each semester, the bookstore will pay up to 50% of the purchase price for those titles that have been ordered for the upcoming semester. If a title has not been ordered for the next semester, we offer the National Market Value which is usually between 10%-30% of the purchase price, depending on the demand for the book nationally.
