Textbooks are now more accessible and affordable!
Clovis Community College offers an affordable and convenient option for all your textbooks through the Textbook Affordability Package (TAP). Textbook costs are automatically built into tuition and fees at the time of registration. Now students can stop by the bookstore and pick up books or have them shipped directly to their home (additional cost for shipping). This allows for a streamlined process for financial aid charging and textbook costs may be tax deductible.
Traditional Textbook Affordability Package (TTAP)
|This is a textbook rental package for most general education courses. Click here for complete list of courses.|
|Students will have the option to purchase the rentals at the end of the semester by paying a percentage of the purchase cost of the rental textbook.|
|Non-returned rentals will incur a late fee plus a replacement fee.|
|Textbook costs are $36 per credit hour, which includes textbooks*, lab manuals, and access codes. This fee excludes any lab kits or supplies such as dissection kits, art supplies, etc.|
Opting out of TAP
Students are opted into this program each semester at the time of registration. Students will receive an email from Texas Book Company through their student email account that includes an opt out link. Students who opt out are opting out of ALL courses for which they are registered and are responsible for all textbook costs. Students should contact email@example.com or 575.769.4020 for textbook advising. Students must opt out each semester by the deadline in order to receive a refund for the TAP fees. Textbooks will be available the week before classes start. For questions about opting out or to schedule delivery, students should contact the bookstore at firstname.lastname@example.org or 575.769.4050.
Students who fail to opt out by the deadline will be responsible for all TAP fees.
