Financial Aid Students
Wharton County Junior College students who have received financial aid are provided in-store credit only at the Wharton Campus and Richmond Campus Barnes & Noble bookstores. This approved financial aid credit can be used for textbooks or supplies purchased in person or ordered on online. If you are trying to pay for your online order and it shows that you don't have available funds, simply wait a few hours and try again. Approved and funded financial aid is posted to the system 4 times a day, so if you'll wait till later in the day, your approved funds might be posted and available.
Information Regarding the Sugar Land Campus
Beginning in the summer of 2019, Barnes & Noble will no longer be the bookstore provider at the Sugar Land campus. The new bookstore vendor at the Sugar Land campus is affiliated with the University of Houston and will not be able to provide in-store credit to Wharton County Junior College financial aid students. Students registered for classes at the Sugar Land campus may purchase their books in person at the Richmond Campus store or online by following the steps through the WCJC Webpage using the steps outlined in the Online Bookstore section above.
Students are not required to purchase text books from the Barnes & Noble College Bookstores. Textbooks may be purchased from other retailers not affiliated with Wharton County Junior College.
