Computer Store Policies

Computer Prices


All prices are subject to change (due to vendor price & availability volatility) until your order has been approved and processed by a Computer Store representative. We will confirm the order with you by email or phone if the price has changed since you placed your order online. Most orders are processed same day except on weekends and University holidays. Late afternoon orders are normally processed the next day.

Computer Shipping


The University of Arkansas Computer Store offers free on-campus delivery for departmental purchases. Due to restricted access in the residence halls we cannot deliver student on-campus orders. If you place an order that needs to be shipped off-campus shipping will be charged based on the value of your order. If your order is time sensitive or you need rush delivery, please call us after placing your online order to expedite the process.

Computer Tax

Sales Tax

U of A Computer Store, in accordance with Arkansas state law, is required to charge sales tax based on the shipping address. We, by default, display local taxes based on shipments to Fayetteville city limits (10%). While we will attempt to get the correct tax rate for your address, if your order will ship to another county or city, the check out page will only serve as a tax estimate and you will be billed the correct taxes for your location once the product ships to you.

Computer Return


The original sales receipt must accompany all returns. No refunds or exchanges after 30 days from the date of sale will be provided. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your product you may be eligible for an exchange or refund. Any open box returns must include all original packaging and materials and may incur a 15% restocking fee. The following exceptions apply:
