Bakersfield College has migrated to a new Online Bookstore! Students can only order their books and course materials online through eCampus. eCampus will either ship your order to your home address (free for orders over $50) or you can ship to campus (free for all orders) and pick up your order at the Renegade Campus Store, located in the Campus Center (same location as the former college bookstore).
Students will benefit from online ordering access 24/7, customer service available via email, phone, or chat, book returns up to 30 days after the start of class, cash back for textbooks at the end of each semester, and a large selection of used books, rental books at a deep discount, and eBooks. More benefits to come. We’re all looking forward to more savings for our students and quick access to all your course materials.
The Renegade Campus Store is now open and selling more of your favorite BC swag, apparel, and merchandise!
Online Bookstore Student FAQ
We are your school’s official bookstore, and by ordering through the Online Bookstore, we guarantee you will receive the correct items for your courses. We also have a dedicated Customer Service Department to answer any questions you have. Finally, we monitor all orders daily to ensure you receive course materials as quickly as possible and before the start of class.
If you do not see any course materials listed for a particular class, this could be because either there is nothing required for the course or the instructor has not yet made a course material decision. You will need to check back to see if any course materials have been added.
The Online Bookstore’s goal is to offer students the most competitive price for their textbooks. With our dynamic pricing model, textbook prices are subject to change based on market prices and inventory conditions.
Marketplace books are items listed and shipped by individual sellers, such as other students and parents. These sellers have two (2) business days after your order is placed to ship the order. Please be sure to read each item’s description before ordering, as each marketplace book has its own condition, description, and shipping cost. Not all marketplace items are available for expedited shipping, and these items will arrive separately from the rest of your order.
Books are shipped based on availability. The availability of each book will be indicated under the condition of each item. If a book is in stock and your order is placed before 11 AM ET, it will ship same day. Any orders placed after 11 AM ET will ship the next business day. If all items are not in stock, your order will ship complete. This means the order will be held and shipped once the entire order is filled. Items on your order will ship as they become available if it is within 2 weeks of the course start date, so you may receive multiple packages. Your books will be shipped via your selected shipping method at checkout. Books are shipped and delivered Monday through Friday.
You may ship your order anywhere you choose. When entering shipping information, you may have the option to check the “Ship to Campus” box to ship directly to your campus. If “Ship to Campus” is not available for your campus, you may enter any valid shipping address. You will receive email and text message alerts (if you choose to opt in) when your package is shipped and delivered.
Yes, we do accept Visa and MasterCard debit cards. You may also use Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards to pay for your order. We also accept PayPal and Apple Pay.
