Books and Supplies

Bookstores are located on Floyd, Gordon, Polk, Walker, and Whitfield Murray campuses. Bookstore hours are posted at each bookstore and can also be found on the GNTC website. Bookstore operations are managed by Nebraska Book Company, Inc. Bookstores have new and used books, supplies and other items for sale. Refunds are available in accordance with Nebraska Book Company, Inc. policy. The Nebraska Book Company, Inc. refund policy is posted prominently in the campus bookstores. Each campus bookstore will be available throughout the term for students to sell their books back to Nebraska Book Company, Inc. The buyback price of the book is based on many factors, including the condition of the book, the edition, and the current demand for the book.


Some programs require that students furnish hand tools. These are areas where a person is expected to have tools upon employment. The required tools may not constitute a complete set but will be adequate to begin work in the field of study.
