CMS textbooks and/or novels will be issued by each CMS teacher. Students are expected to be good stewards of their resources. Materials must be returned at the end of the semester or after completion of the class. Damage to the book or failure to return these items may result in a fee assessed for the cost of the book.
NEW TEXTBOOK PROCESS: Beginning Spring 2024, Central Piedmont Community College will be launching the IncludED Textbook Access Program. This program makes required course materials (not including kits, software or recommended materials) available to students on or before the first day of class as part of their tuition and fees. All Central Piedmont students enrolled in a curriculum program (classes for a college degree) are eligible and will be automatically covered in the IncludED program.
You will not need to purchase your required course materials as they will be automatically ordered for you. You will begin to be notified that your course materials are available beginning approximately 2 weeks before class starts.
Please visit https://www.cpcc.edu/included for details, troubleshooting, and frequently asked questions.
If your class requires a kit, these may be purchased through the CPCC bookstore on-campus or online at https://www.bkstr.com/centralpiedmontstore. Middle College students should select “Financial Aid” and enter their CPCC ID number. CMS only covers course textbook/access code materials; they do not cover school supplies, calculators, or other items covered by normal financial aid. Students and parents will not need to pay any money out of pocket for textbooks for Fall or Spring semesters.
** Middle College students can only purchase kits during the times that financial aid is open to the bookstore.
