The Western Dakota Tech Bookstore, located in Dakota Hall, offers a wide variety of school supplies and WDT apparel, in addition to required textbooks. Students are encouraged to keep their bookstore receipt for a variety of purposes, including tax preparation. The bookstore cannot issue duplicate receipts. All bookstore sales are cash, personal checks (for the amount of purchase only), credit card, or Western Dakota Tech Gift Card.
Textbook ChargesWestern Dakota Tech students who have all their financial aid and admissions documents in place, and have completed all required steps, may be eligible for the Textbook Assistance Program. The Textbook Assistance program allows you to charge your required textbooks at the Western Dakota Tech Bookstore, and have those charges added to your tuition and fee account. You can simply have your financial aid applied to these charges when your aid is disbursed. It is important to note that you must have enough financial aid to cover all of these direct expenses in order to qualify. Contact the Student Accounts Office one week before classes start to see if you qualify.
