Based on a review of textbook costs in 2014, a full-time student at one of the seven colleges of DCCCD who took 15 credit hours per semester, over four semesters, paid about $1,965 for books. The contract will save $536 to $670, or a cost reduction of more than 33%. Savings will vary, based on whether you buy new or used textbooks as well as how many semesters and credit hours you are enrolled.
Students who want to
rent textbooks can keep doing that. Since the textbook rental program began in the district in 2014, more than 106,000 students have participated, saving an estimated $2.6 million.
Saving you money — just one more way DCCCD is helping you to succeed.
