  • Traditional Programs - You may pick up your textbooks beginning Monday, August 21st at 7:30am in the Library. Below is a schedule when the library will be open for textbook pick-up.

If you have not registered for Fall classes, you need to do that ASAP. Late registration will result in a delay in you getting your textbooks. If you register late, your books should arrive approximately 2 to 3 days later. Textbooks are specific to each student. We do not have extras.

CCSJ Book Program FAQs


I think that I can do a better job finding books at a lower cost. Can I opt out of the CCSJ Book Program and purchase my own books at the lowest price that I can find?

No. The CCSJ Book Program is mandatory. The book fee is required of every registered student so we can be sure that all students have all the books they need on the first day of class.

What happens if I drop or add a course?

When you drop a course, you will receive a pre-paid mailing label in order to return it, or you can return it to the library Book Program location, just as you would at the end of the semester. If you add a course after books have been delivered, your new book will be sent to you at an additional charge.

Can I write in my rented books?

eCampus expects a standard amount of highlighting and notes. If you return a book that cannot be used for another student, you will be charged half the replacement cost of the book.

What happens if my book is lost or stolen?

You will be charged half the replacement cost of the book.

I really like to keep my books for future reference. Do I have to return my books at the end of the semester?

No. You can decide anytime during the semester to keep your book, and you will be charged half the replacement cost of the book.

How will I pay any additional fees?

All additional book fees – for lost or stolen books or books you decide to keep – will be added to your student account.
