Georgia Perimeter College Book Purchasing Policy Change sign now

We, the students with financial aid (students) at Georgia Perimeter College (GPC), feel as though the book purchasing policy at GPC needs to be changed.

First, the students financial aid is kept, not given to students by GPC, until after the first week of classes.

Second, GPC does give students $500 to use for books via the students ID card a few days before classes start. The students ID card can not be used until the first day of classes. More often than not, students have to purchase new books which cost considerably more than used books. Also, with the prices of new books going up every year, $500 may not be enough in the very near future. Students are then subjected to stand in line for a couple of hours at some point during the first week of classes at GPC, which is not fair to the students as they should be puts undo strain on campus bookstore employees, and considerably overloads the campus bookstore computer system as it crashes periodically during this time.

We propose that GPC give the students their full refund, which is total financial aid minus tuition, a couple of weeks before classes begin. This would allow students to:

1) purchase books in a variety of ways such as online websites (such as efollett.com), on-campus bookstores, off-campus bookstores
2) use their financial aid in the manner that they prefer, after all it is their money and not GPCs
3) purchase books early in order to have a chance at purchasing used books
4) assist in reducing the long lines at the campus bookstore as they could purchase periodically during the couple of weeks before school
5) assist in reducing the strain on campus bookstore employees during the first week of classes
6) assist in reducing overloading the campus bookstore computer system by purchasing books in a variety of methods described in #1 above
