Textbook FAQ

Q: How can I find my textbook information or purchase a textbook?

A: At the CCM Campus Store, there are now three ways to purchase textbooks and materials for your courses. Students can visit the Campus Store in the Student Center with a copy of their schedule (either from Titan's Direct or printed out) and make their selections in person. They may also purchase textbooks and materials right here on the CCM Campus Store website for in-store pickup or shipping or use our price comparison tool to shop from CCM and the most popular textbook websites! 

On the price comparison site you will need to have access to your schedule including course and section numbers.

For example, ACC 111 -12345 

ACC is the Department. In this case, Accounting. Once you click on the box labeled "ACC - Accounting" a list of courses will appear. Clicking on the course number ACC-111 then opens the sections, or individual classes, within that course, including faculty information if available. 12345 is the five digit section number unique to your class. This is the most important number as different sections of a course can use different materials, even if the faculty is the same! 

If you are using the price comparison tool, you will then need to check out any "carts" you have created separately with each bookseller.

Q: There are several selections under my course, how do I  make the right one?

A: When a course has many different selections it is important to read each choice carefully. Depending on the course, there may be required items, suggested or optional items, or a choice between items. If an item has a choice (Choose 1 of 2, for example) this means that there is a choice in format. A book may either come in a Looseleaf format, a Hardcover, or ebook.  Courses requiring an access code often have a choice between an all-digital option or a package that includes a physical textbook and the code.  If you have any questions or concerns about what an item description is, or what format the item could be, you can always use our live chat, or send us an email at: bookstore@ccm.eduSuggested or Optional titles are those deemed not necessary for the completion of the class, but chosen by the faculty for being helpful to students.

Q: I see a choice between an Access Card and an Access Code.  What's the difference?

A: An access card is a physical item, a scratch off version of an access code. The access card is only available for pick up from the store or ship-to-home, while an access code is delivered to your inbox as an email shortly after your order is placed. If you are ordering more than 14 days in advance of the semester, choose the access card option to ensure returnability.

Q: What about Rentals? Does the CCM Campus Store do rentals?

The CCM Campus Store rents the majority of our titles. For further information about our rentals (i.e. Dates, Policies and Procedures) you can go to: https://bookstore.ccm.edu/rentals

Q: How can I get an online order?

A: Online orders can be obtained in one of three ways: shipping, in-store pickup, or email delivery. The selection is made during the checkout process. Be sure to read the up-to-date shipping time information on the checkout page before submitting your order.  We typically offer UPS and USPS shipping, but available options will show at the point of checkout.  We also offer in-store pickup. Due to COVID, please visit https://bookstore.ccm.edu/person-pickup for in-store pickup status and instructions. 

Q: Do I need an appointment to get my books? 

A: At this time appointments are not necessary for pickup.  Your fulfillment confirmation will have updated instructions as well as a check-in link for notifying us when you are on campus to pick up your order.
