Return Policy

Refunds or exchanges will be accepted until the second week of each semester (third day for summer semester) or one week after date of purchase if purchase was made prior to a semester. For a 100% refund or exchange, students must bring the textbook back (a) in the first week of the fall or winter semester, (b) within the first three days of the summer semester, or (c) one week from the date of purchase if the purchase was made prior to the beginning of a semester. A 90% refund is available for textbooks returned the second week of the fall or winter semester.

For an exchange or refund, customers must have the original till receipt (plus debit/credit card or yellow textbook charge receipt if applicable). All refunds will be applied to the student’s account unless original purchase was made with a credit card (refunded to credit card).

Textbooks will NOT be accepted for a refund or exchange if:

  • plastic shrink wrap has been opened or removed (when applicable).
  • textbook has been damaged in any way.
  • any accompanying CD or student aid is missing from the text package.
  • returned after the second week of the fall or winter semesters, or after the third day of the summer semester.

Columbia Bible College reserves the right to refuse refunds if the return does not meet the standards listed in the store policy.


Students who wish to park on campus must purchase a parking pass for the whole academic year beginning in September. If a parking pass is no longer needed, students can return the pass and complete a parking pass cancellation form available at the front office. The prorated amount will be refunded to the student’s account. Daily parking is available, please see reception for rates.

24 Hour Campus Secuity | 604-853-7010


Columbia Bible College places a high priority on the public safety of the campus community. To help maintain security, every student and staff member is issued a prox card with picture ID. Each prox card is coded to allow access to specific buildings and rooms on campus. For example, commuters gain access to the Commuter Lounge with their prox card, and residents need their prox cards to access their building and floor.


Note that our 24-hour on-campus assistance line is printed on the back of every prox card, so you should never have trouble finding it.
