You will want to purchase your textbooks early enough that you have time to receive them by the first day of class. This is true regardless of where you purchase your books.
If you want to purchase your books through the College Bookstore, you can access specific books for your classes by using Follett Discover.
You may want to look up book costs for a class of which you are not registered. You can do so by going to the College Bookstore site directly under Find My Course Materials and Shop by Courses and entering the information about that class. You will need the course and section number, for example ENC1101 section 106F.
NOTE: Follett provides a price match guarantee program, which applies to new textbooks on the then current term purchases. Price matches will be acceptable from local competitive brick and mortar bookstores as well as Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Chegg. Online marketplace offers excluded.
