Textbooks & Course Materials

What Textbooks and Course Materials Will I Need?

To determine what course materials you may need, please visit our online Textbook Calculator after July 15th when it is updated with FALL materials. If you do not find your course materials listed, check the course outline to see if course materials must be purchased or if they are provided within the course.

Note: USED BOOKS are often available for about 75% cost of new. Visit the PeAks Campus store weekdays from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Are Digital Textbooks/Course Materials an Option?

If you are seeking a fully digital option due to distance, please ask your Instructor if they have a link to any online options. These are often added to a course page on COTROnline.

How much will Textbooks and Course Materials cost?

As course materials are adopted by faculty on a semester by semester basis, they often change, Therefore, we cannot confirm materials or costs for future semesters.
