Book Process Information

for HIGH SCHOOL LOCATION

  • The school district will provide books for all College Credit Plus classes offered at a high school location.

for ONLINE OR ON-CAMPUS

  • Most students do not pay for books for their approved College Credit Plus classes. Please contact your high school counselor to find out how to obtain books. 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 Information" below.

    Schools without a book agreement:

    It is the responsibility of the school district to cover the cost of books for the College Credit Plus program. Please talk to your high school counselor in order to find out about obtaining books for classes. School districts may choose to purchase books through an alternative source, or choose the following options through the Columbus State Bookstore: 

  • Sign a CSCC 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, schools should contact Gillian Lustig-Shilts at csbookstore@cscc.edu or 614-287-5237.

Book Voucher Information

HOW IT WORKS

  • 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 (see our voucher list), to obtain books for online or on-campus College Credit Plus classes at the start of each semester. Books for CCP classes being taught at a high school location will be provided by the high school.

    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. 

    What if I attend a school district not on the voucher list?

    If you are not enrolled in an approved school district to receive a voucher, then you will need to speak with your high school counselor about obtaining books. If they would like the bookstore to create vouchers for their students please have them contact Gillian Lustig-Shilts at 614-287-5237 or csbookstore@cscc.edu

    When will I receive my book voucher?

    Students do not need to pick up anything or obtain a physical voucher. College Credit Plus students eligible for an electronic book voucher will receive a notification to their Columbus State student email once their voucher is available to use. Textbook and ordering information will be included in this email.

    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. Student's who register close to or after the start of classes may not receive their voucher until after the semester begins. 

    When can I use my voucher?

    Vouchers, once received, will be available for use as follows: 

    Autumn Semester 2017: August 14 - September 8 
    (online ordering begins August 22)
  • Spring Semester 2018: TBD
  • How do I use my voucher in-person?

    Students must present a copy of their schedule from Cougarweb to use a College Credit Plus voucher at the bookstore. See the designated CC+ area on the 2nd floor of the bookstore for assistance.

    If you need assistance or help concerning a CC+ book voucher please email csbookstore@cscc.edu or call 614-287-5237 (please provide student's full name and cougar ID).

    What if all I need is an online Access Code?

    Online access codes and eBooks are physical items that must be picked up at the bookstore or shipped via an online order. Please do not self-pay online from someone other than the bookstore, as we will not be able to refund the cost.
