Get Your Textbooks
The CCAC Bookstores carry new and used textbooks required for the courses offered on campus and through the online learning program. CCAC Bookstores offer as many used books for sale as possible. Used textbooks sell for 25% less than new textbooks. To help lower the costs of higher education, CCAC students also have access to Follett's popular Rent-A-Text program, which saves up to 80% vs. the price of a new textbook. Follett also provides access to a large selection of digital solutions, including titles supported by BryteWave, Follett's digital textbook reader.
The bookstores also offer a Price Match option, under which the campus bookstore will match the price of textbooks offered for sale through Amazon or Barnes & Noble, with the difference in price placed on a bookstore gift card that can be used to purchase other items in the bookstores, including textbooks.
To see what materials your course may need, read the CCAC Help Center "Purchasing Books and Materials from the Bookstore" article.
Student Laptop Loaner Program
CCAC is offering a Student Loaner Laptop Program, which gives students the opportunity to borrow a laptop. Devices may be borrowed on a semester basis and students can keep their device(s) as long as they are enrolled at CCAC. Students can reach out to the Dean of Students Office through the Online Dean Form for more information about the Loaner Laptop Program.
Applications are submitted through the Loaner Laptop Request Form and approved on a first come, first serve basis, as long as devices are available. If approved, students may check out their devices at the campus library of their choosing during the pickup window (similarly to the way you check out a book at the library). The loaner laptops are not owned by the bookstore. For pickup, problems or returns, students must go to the campus library.
CCAC ACCESS Program
The ACCESS program, which is being piloted through a partnership between CCAC and our bookstore operator, Follett Corporation, is a program designed to help our students get the course materials they need to succeed before their first day of class at a reduced cost.
