• CMS Textbooks:
      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.

      CPCC Textbooks:
      CPCC textbooks are available from the on-campus bookstore or online at https://www.bkstr.com/centralpiedmontstore. . Early 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. 

      ** Early College students can only purchase textbooks during the times that financial aid is open to the bookstore.
