SVA Campus Store Return Privilege

This return policy is strictly enforced and is non-negotiable.

New, unopened merchandise may be returned or exchanged within 30 days of purchase.  This excludes laptops/desktops/iPads, which may be returned within 7 days of purchase, unopened and with the manufacturer seal intact. Opened laptops, desktops, iPads, hard drives, and Cintiqs are not returnable. All In-Ear headphones are FINAL SALE. All returned/exchanged merchandise must be in new condition, include original packaging (box, foam, plastic wrappings, etc.), warranties/instructions/accessories, with the manufacturer seal intact and be accompanied by the original sales receipt.


SVA Campus Store may refuse a refund/exchange or assess a charge for used/incomplete merchandise returned/exchanged. An open box fee equal to 15% of the purchase price will be charged for any opened item, unless the item is defective and exchanged for the exact same item.  Defective returns must be made within 7 days of purchase.  After 7 days all defective item issues should be resolved with the manufacturer.


Unfortunately, due to the daily fluctuations of price in the electronics industry we do not offer any type of price protection whatsoever.

Special orders are non-cancelable and non-returnable.

Returns or exchanges will not be made for clearance items marked “As Is”, “Clearance Item – No Exchange”, “Final Sale” or items that are defective as a result of misuse or abuse.


We are pleased to offer custom configured product to your specifications, and encourage you to review your order carefully. Since the product is built to your specifications, the order cannot be changed, modified or cancelled once your order has been processed. All custom configured computers (not stocked by store) are considered FINAL SALE due to the custom configuration.
