Buy Textbooks

CCV partners with a textbook vendor, eCampus, to provide you with more choices to help reduce textbook costs. eCampus is a full-service bookstore that provides a robust used and rental market as well as access to purchasing textbooks on the open marketplace from independent sellers. You are responsible for ordering books and materials and for bringing them to class. If the cost of textbooks poses a challenge for you, please contact your advisor, financial aid counselor, or local CCV center to explore funding options.
