The last day to use financial aid credits for the Fall semester is Friday, September 25th at 3pm. Please be sure to get your fall materials by this date if you are using financial aid credits. Also, if you have any books you need to return, get them to us by this date as well. Our hours are 10-2 Monday - Friday, if these hours do not work for you, please email bookstore@parkland.edu. Any bookstore credits not used by the 25th will be refunded back to you either as a check or direct deposit. 

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 – Fri, 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.

Financial aid credits will also be available beginning August 10th.
