- Set up your student email.
- Check CougarWeb to review your schedule.
- Use the Textbook Lookup to see what is required for each course. "Choose 1" means only one (1) choice is required, so select the one you prefer. "Optional" or "Suggested" means the material is self-pay.
Check Voucher Eligibility
If a course is noted as “self-pay” on the authorization form, then the tuition and books are the student’s responsibility. Choose the credit card payment method when purchasing online for these materials.
If a student is over their alotted credit hours and self-pay has not yet been determined, then the student will not be eligible to receive any books until they either drop course(s) that put them over or a Financial Responsibility Form is completed. This form is sent from your Columbus State CCP advisor and confirms what courses a student will self-pay for.
High School Sections
High schools distribute books for high school sections. You will not receive a voucher if you are only enrolled in these sections. High school sections show as 8000 level on your schedule. NOTE: The only exceptions are for the CCP Online Academy courses; sections W8995, W8996, W8997, W8998, W8999 are eligible to be charged to your voucher.
Approved Voucher Schools
The Voucher covers eligible CCP students from authorized school districts only. Check the Bookstore Voucher: School List to see if your school is listed. If listed, Jump to Bookstore Voucher FAQ.
- If your school has not authorized Columbus State to provide vouchers, please contact your high school to obtain books. If a school would like to participate in the Bookstore Voucher process please contact the bookstore to complete a 2020-2021 College Credit Plus Tuition and Fees School District Book Process Memorandum of Understanding.
