Life Pacific College: Established in 1923


Life Pacific College partners with MBS Direct, an online textbook and course material provider, that offers students competitive prices on new and used textbooks and materials. MBS Direct is a convenient service known for excellent customer service, timely delivery, and their guaranteed buyback program.

Ordering your textbooks can be quite challenging with many uncertainties associated with using other online vendors, which is ultimately why our school chose MBS Direct. We strongly urge you to use MBS Direct to guarantee you receive the correct book, competitive prices, and the highest level of confidence and satisfaction. In addition, MBS Direct’s 100% returns policy will refund your money for 21 days after the order is shipped or 21 days after school has started, whichever comes later (If you are ordering books for an Independent Study course, the first option is the one that will apply to you).
