The books requested will be pulled for each student, cost charged to the department, and stamped with Property of Cumberland University. An excel spreadsheet with the students name, books received and date distributed is created as the books are pulled. The spreadsheet is sent to the business office for the appropriate holds are placed on the respective students account. Books will then be picked up by the coach, assistant coach or a graduate assistant designated by the coach. Attached to each students textbooks will be the receipt of charges for the department records along with a student agreement stating the following:
It is your responsibility to return all* books borrowed to the bookstore at the end of the semester. (*Including web cards and used workbooks).|
If books are not returned in a timely manner your coach will be notified and a hold will remain on your account preventing you from receiving your grades or registering for classes the following semester. |
In the event that the textbook is lost or stolen it is your responsibility to reimburse the cost of the textbook to the university to have the hold removed from your account. |
Please contact the business office (615-547-1250) or the bookstore (615-547-1236) with any questions or concerns. |
Students are to print name, sign and date the agreement upon receipt of their textbooks. After all textbooks have been distributed the coach will return the signed agreements to the bookstore.
At the end of the semester students are to return the books to the bookstore wherein their name is found on the spreadsheet, highlighted as returned and sent to the business office for removal of the hold. In the event of a lost or stolen text the student will be charged retail for the text and must pay prior to becoming official for the following semester.
As the texts are returned they are held by the bookstore for use by the athletic team(s) in future semesters; doing so alleviates unnecessary department charges. If the books are found unusable due to change in title by the instructor or age of edition they are donated to departments on campus or to local charities for use as teaching tools.
