Textbook Policy and Procedure
CECP provides textbooks for all students. On-campus students receive textbooks from their teachers, while students enrolled in off-campus courses must follow the following procedure to obtain their textbooks:
On-Campus Textbook Procedure
CECP will provide any necessary textbooks to students taking courses on the CECP campus. Students are responsible for the book(s) that have been issued to them. If you fail to return a textbook by the end of the semester, or if you damage or write in a book so that cannot be re-issued, you will be responsible for reimbursing CECP at the current publisher’s cost of the book. A “hold” will be placed on your student account, and no student records will be released until the book is either returned or payment is received in compensation.
Off-Campus Textbook Procedure
These procedures must be followed if you want to be reimbursed by CECP for your books:
1. chegg.com 2. amazon.com 3. bn.com 4. skyo.com 5. Your respective community college websites
If you rent from one of these sites, you are expected to follow their terms and conditions. CECP will assume no responsibility, financial or otherwise, for books that have been damaged or returned after the due date specified in your rental agreement. Please use your best judgment when renting from these sites and order from the least expensive site. Make sure to select a rental period long enough so that the book will not be due back until AFTER the course ends. If you are unable to find your textbook from one of the above sites, you may seek out other websites or methods to obtain your book. RENTED TEXTBOOKS MUST BE RETURNED TO THE SITE IN WHICH THEY WERE RENTED FROM, NOT THE CECP CAMPUS.
Purchase Options (Used)
CECP will only reimburse for required textbooks for a class. Students may purchase recommended/optional materials, for example lab coats or art supplies, at their own expense. If CECP is to reimburse the cost of a book, whether new or used, that book becomes the property of CECP. It must be returned to Rachael Sundeen, the CECP School Accounts Manager, in office 212, during the reimbursement window from December 1-16 for fall semester, May 15-24 for spring semester, and June 5-16 for summer semester. If you plan to keep a textbook, do not submit for reimbursement. Textbooks will not be reimbursed for failed courses. Reimbursements will not be given if there is a balance on the student account.
Reimbursement and Textbook Return Process
If you rented ALL of your textbooks for the spring semester, you are eligible for early textbook reimbursement starting November 20. If ALL of your textbook expenses were rentals, access codes, or consumables (workbooks or lab manuals) you may email the following to Mrs. Sundeen (email@example.com) to receive reimbursement.
*Rented textbooks should be returned to the site in which they were rented from.
Once Mrs. Sundeen has received all of the above items, you will receive a mailed reimbursement check up to the amount left in your CEC tuition voucher with a maximum reimbursement of $500.00. Requests for fall reimbursement after December 21 will not be approved. Requests for spring reimbursement made after May 24 will not be approved.
