Barnes & Noble operates TCC’s exclusive Bookstore

Students are responsible for purchasing required textbooks and supplies, all of which are available at the TCC Bookstore. The cost of your textbooks and supplies varies from semester to semester and from one program of study to another.

Buying Textbooks

Barnes & Noble at TCC offers new and used textbooks for rent or purchase. In addition to traditional print textbooks, digital textbooks are also available.

You can use your financial aid to purchase textbooks and supplies either online or at the bookstore. These purchases can be made approximately 2-3 weeks before the start of the term. View the financial aid charge periods.
