CECFC provides students with textbooks for high school and college classes on our high school campus and offers a reimbursement program for off-campus textbooks, if they are not available in the CECFC bookstore. Please take care of the books you are provided. (As always, borrowing or renting your textbooks is preferred.)
Required + Borrow from CECFC = FREE
Required + Rented = Reimbursements starting February 15th
Required + Purchased = May Reimbursement
- WHAT BOOKS/MATERIALS ARE REQUIRED? Go to the bookstore website of the college you are taking classes from. Enter the term, the course prefix, and the course number/section of the courses you are taking (e.g. Fall 2017 ENG 121-602). You can enter multiple courses. You can then PRINT your list of course materials. Save this list to submit later for reimbursement.
- Note: Both required AND optional books and access codes will be listed. CEC will ONLY reimburse for REQUIRED materials.
- BORROW OR RENT YOUR BOOKS
- BEST option: With your ISBN number(s), submit a CECFC Bookstore Request to see if you can borrow your book for FREE from CEC.
- OTHER options: With your ISBN number(s), search other book rental sites (amazon.com; chegg.com; valore.com; bn.com) for the cheapest rental prices. Follow the rental checklist below.
- If a book or access code cannot be rented: When you absolutely cannot find a book available for rent, you may purchase it, knowing it will cost you more dollars from your voucher. Access codes may always be purchased.
- HOW TO GET REIMBURSED
- Submit for rental and access code reimbursement at bit.ly/cecfctextbooks NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, MAY 5th, 2017
- Purchased books will be bought back for full purchase price at our textbook buyback dates at the end of the semester (original receipt required).
Textbook reimbursement is only available to students with remaining voucher dollars.
