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 student enrolled at an approved school district to obtain books for online or on-campus College Credit Plus funded classes. Books for College Credit Plus 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, which can be purchased at the Columbus State Bookstore. 

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

    Please speak with your high school counselor about obtaining books. Schools interested in having the bookstore provide book vouchers for their students should contact Gillian Lustig-Shilts at 614-287-5237 or csbookstore@cscc.edu

    When will I receive my book voucher?

    College Credit Plus students eligible for an electronic book voucher will receive a notification to their Columbus State student email once the voucher is available to use. The email communication will include textbook information and ordering details. Books may not be obtained prior to receiving your Book Voucher notification.

    When can I use my voucher?

    Vouchers, once received, will be available for use as follows: Spring Semester 2018: TBA

  • How do I use my voucher in-person?

    Students are required to 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.

    What if all I need is an online Access Code?

    Online access codes and eBooks are not sent to your email, and 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.
