Ordering and Returning Books for your Spring 2024 Classes

Hawkeye Bookstore, currently owned and operated by Barnes and Noble College and located in the Brock Student Center, is your place for official Hawkeye Community College textbooks, gear, and supplies.

Hawkeye is discontinuing this program after the Spring 2024 semester. We are moving to an online bookstore beginning Summer 2024.

First Day Complete (formerly Box of Books) Textbook Rental Program

The First Day Complete textbook rental program is designed to save you time and money and ensure you have all your textbooks and course materials for each of your classes prior to the first day of class.

Through the First Day Complete textbook rental program the Hawkeye Bookstore does all the shopping for you and puts together a package of physical books and digital material for each of your courses prior to the first day of class.

Upon registration for Spring 2024 classes students are automatically enrolled in the First Day Complete textbook rental program, however, students can choose to opt-out and purchase their textbooks and course materials themselves.

Ordering Books and Course Materials for your Summer 2024 and Fall 2024 Classes

Beginning with the Summer 2024 term, Hawkeye will transition course material services to a new bookstore model where you order your textbooks online. Physical items will be delivered to you by mail while digital access information is emailed. The new platform is designed to provide you with affordable course materials, convenience, and choice.

The Hawkeye Online Bookstore website is not yet live, but will be soon. You will be contacted once the website is live.

Benefits of the new online bookstore:

  • Personalized: All of your courses and materials are listed on one page when you log in with your school account, removing the need to search across multiple channels for that information. It takes only minutes to review and order textbooks.

  • Textbook variety: Select from new, used, ebook, and rental textbooks.

  • Affordable prices: The bookstore has a marketplace where you can save an average of 60% off the list price of textbooks that are sold by students and vendors around the country.

  • Save on new books: Price match guarantee on new books.

  • Payment options: Ability to pay with your credit card, approved financial aid, or charge to your student account.

  • Free delivery options: Free economy shipping offers on retail items when the order is over $49 (not including marketplace).

  • Shipping options: Choose to ship your order to your home or to campus.

  • Sell books: Post used textbooks for sale on the website's marketplace and name your own selling price.
