Most students do not pay for books for their approved College Credit Plus classes. Note: Home school students and students who take unapproved classes must self-pay for books.
Schools with a book agreement (see Voucher List):
Columbus State will provide an electronic book voucher for each student enrolled at an approved school district, to obtain books for online or on-campus College Credit Plus classes. Have questions about vouchers? See: "Book Voucher FAQ" below.
Schools without a book agreement:
Students should talk to their high school in order to find out about obtaining books. It is the decision of the school district to decide on how they would like to purchase books, and some schools may choose to purchase books through an alternative source (book requirements can be found on our booklist on the right navigation menu).If your school would like to set up a book process with the Columbus State Bookstore, they have the following options:
Sign a Columbus State Community College College Credit Plus Non-Partner School District Book Process Memorandum of Understanding
This allows the college to establish a book voucher for students to receive books directly from the bookstore.
Use a purchase order to buy books from the Columbus State Bookstore
The high school distributes books to the student.
For either option, the school should contact Gillian Lustig-Shilts at email@example.com or 614-287-5237.
What is a College Credit Plus book voucher?
Columbus State will provide an electronic book voucher for each eligible student enrolled at an approved school district, to obtain books for online or on-campus College Credit Plus classes at the start of each semester.
See if your school district is listed under the voucher list (see below).
What if I'm a home school student?
Home school students do not receive book vouchers and are responsible for purchasing their own books and supplies. The books can be purchased at the Columbus State Bookstore. For more information on this policy visit the FAQ at Ohio Higher Ed's website.
When will I receive my book voucher?
Students do not need to pick up anything or obtain a physical voucher. Book vouchers are sent electronically to your CSCC student email. The "Book Voucher" email means you have received your voucher and can directly go to the bookstore to obtain books. Textbook information on how to obtain books will be included in your email.
Voucher emails are sent typically one week before the start of classes, and your bookstore voucher account will be available to use at the bookstore only during designated periods during the term.
The availability of a book voucher is dependent on when a student has registered for courses and if courses are eligible for College Credit Plus funding.
When can I use my voucher?
Vouchers, once received, will be available for use as follows:
Summer Semester 2017: May 17 - June 26
- Autumn Semester 2017: August 14 - TBA
