Course Options & Degree Planning

Students may choose to take courses to fulfill high school graduation requirements, college graduation requirements, transfer needs, or based solely on interest. Not every college course is allowable under the CCP program. The first 15 hours of college credit a CCP student takes be from Level 1 courses.

If you are…

Talk to your counselor to ask what your school’s CCP Textbook policy is, then refer to the steps below for your next course of action.

Talk to your school counselor. They will assist you with textbooks for the courses for which you received CCP funding. If you are self-paying for courses, you must also pay for your textbooks. If you purchase your textbook(s) from the Campus Bookstore (Follett), you can be assured it is the correct edition and bundle for your course(s) at NCSC.

If you purchase or rent your book elsewhere, please be sure to check the edition, ISBN, and bundle, where applicable.
