How it Works

LCCC Textbooks+ takes the hassle out of getting your course materials because costs are covered through your tuition and fees. LCCC Textbooks+ will save students between 20% and 60% on required course materials! This allows every enrolled student access to all required materials on or before the first day of class. Once you have selected your courses, your course list will be sent to the Campus Bookstore. The Campus Bookstore gets everything ready for you. All you need to do is check your school email for how to access your course materials for the term.

How do I participate in this program?
