-SUMMER NO RETURNS
-Spring Rental Returns Due Back 1/28/2020
-Rentals due back by 6/1/2020 

 

 

Greetings WCU Students,

Due to WCU’s transition to Alternative Modes of Instruction for the remainder of the semester, we are altering our rental return procedure for the Spring 2020 term. The WCU Campus Store is closed to the public until further notice.

We have decided having the rental returns shipped back to us would be the best manageable way. Since, the Campus is closed to the public and to most employees, we were challenged to come up with a destination that is open reliably everyday. Therefore, we are asking that you send your rentals back to the location below, and NOT to the WCU Campus Store or any other University address.

Please note that due to these changes the Rental Return Date Deadline has been changed to 6/1/20. All books must be shipped back before 6/1/20.

Please read the following directions carefully.

Before shipping (USING THE ADDRESS BELOW)

1. Please check your email for the textbook information of the titles you have rented.
2. Please include with the textbooks you ship, your Name, Student ID and Phone Number (If you do not follow this step, we will have no way of identifying whose rentals are in the shipment)
3. Please copy the UPS Tracking Number of your package and store it somewhere safe, in case we need to reference it in the future.
4. Due to the unforeseen circumstances in the change in rental policy, the WCU Campus Store will be happy to issue store credit (in the form of a gift card) to any student who brings in their UPS GROUND shipping receipt for rental books, once the store is open to the public again.
5. Please ship UPS GROUND to:

UPS Store
ATTN: WCU RENTAL RETURN
929 S.High Street #101-316
West Chester, PA 19382


We appreciate your patience and understanding during these unforeseen circumstances. Please check our Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for updates on the WCU Campus Store

Please remember to return your books by 6/1/2020 to avoid paying the replacement cost of the textbook. Below is a list of the textbooks that should be returned to the WCU Campus Store and the fees that may be charged if they are not returned
by the due date 6/1/2020.

We wish you the best with the remainder of the semester and Stay Safe,

WCU Campus Store Staff

If you do not return the rented textbooks by the due date, 6/1/2020, we make 3 attempts to charge the securing credit card you provided at the time of purchase for the fees as indicated above. After 3 failed attempts your account will be sent to the collection agency, Coast Professional, Inc.
