Bookstore Closed for Independence Day

Thank you!

Honorlock Exam Tokens

 When purchasing an Honorlock code from the bookstore you are creating a transaction similar to a book purchase.  We process the purchases when we are open (Mon – Thu, 8 am – 4 pm) and email the code directly to you. There is a delay between when you complete your transaction and when it arrives here at the bookstore (up to an hour), and we may not see the order immediately, either.  If you need a code at night or during the weekend (Fri – Sun), you should go directly to the Honorlock website to purchase it instead, as we won’t be able to provide immediate turnaround.  We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.


College Closed on Fridays

The Parkland College campus will be closed on Fridays starting on Friday June 19th. This includes the bookstore so any orders placed after 5pm on Thursdays will not be processed until Monday morning. 

Summer Book Orders

With the Parkland College campus closed over the weekends, materials ordered for the summer session are only processed Monday through Thursday between 9 and 4. Orders will take at least a business day, possibly two, during the busy first week of the semester. Residents of Illinois usually receive their packages in a day or two.

The last day to use financial aid during the summer semester is Monday, June 22nd.

Important Information for Summer 2020

While the physical Parkland College Bookstore is closed due to the pandemic, students can order books and other course-related items for Summer 2020 online. During this time, all orders will ship for FREE. Acceptable forms of payment include debit, credit, and financial aid, including Bookstore Voucher Forms.
