Student Textbooks

For CC+ students attending the Chillicothe, Eastern, Lancaster, Southern, or Zanesville campus:

Students who attend Eastern, Chillicothe, Lancaster, Southern, or Zanesville campuses must work directly with their school district to obtain required textbooks, course materials, or digital content.

For CC+ students attending the Athens Campus:

New Students

New, first-term CC+ students who attend the Athens campus will receive textbook authorization forms at the required orientation sessions prior to the start of each semester. Student services staff will populate the authorization forms with each student’s name, PID, and school district information.

Continuing Students

Continuing students that attend the Athens campus will be emailed their textbook authorization forms approximately four weeks prior to the start of each semester. In the case that a continuing student does not receive an authorization form, please have them contact University College on the Athens campus.

Textbook Pickup

After receipt of the authorization form, students should follow the pickup instructions for the bookstore below:

Athens Campus
The College Bookstore
50 S. Court St. Athens, OH 45710

Students should pre-order their Athens Campus required textbooks, course materials, or digital content at The College Bookstore by emailing their schedules, noting the section number of the courses, to Cathi Schwalbauch. Pre-orders should be placed as soon as possible to allow the bookstore to order any materials not currently in stock. Pickup is available at the Court Street store Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. in the text department. Students are required to present their textbook authorization form and photo ID to the bookstore for pickup.

The bookstore will keep the authorization form on file in case a student changes his or her schedule and needs to add or return a book.

Digital Course Materials

Ohio University’s Digital Content Program may raise questions around how and where CC+ students enrolled in participating courses need to obtain their digital course materials. Please be advised that CC+ students are not currently registered for the Digital Content Program and do not need to opt out of or take any additional action related to the program, as their student accounts will not be charged. 

The Digital Content Program allows all students, access to digital versions of required course materials for a trial period which ends at the end of the add/drop period.

CC+ students are encouraged to obtain their required course textbooks, course materials, or digital content based on their OHIO campus as described above.
