Application Review Process
We begin to process textbook loan applications two weeks before the start of each term/semester. Once your application is processed, you will receive an e-mail notification with the status of your application.
If we have books available to loan you, you will have 5 business days to pick them up from the time you receive the e-mail notification. Books that are not picked up within 5 business days, will be made available to other students.
Book Return Instructions
All book returns must be made at the Textbook Loan Program Office during regular hours of operation or at the EOPS office. If you were loaned texbooks in previous semesters and did not return them, you may have a hold on your records.
To avoid a hold on your records, return books as soon as you are done with final examinations.
Any damaged or lost books will be replaced at the expense of the borrower. For more information please call us at 760.757.2121 x6421
