CPTC Bookstore Purchasing Procedure

Books are sold to students who are registered to take courses scheduled at CPTC. Books will be sold during the first two weeks of each semester using Financial Aid and throughout the term using cash, checks, or credit cards. To purchase books through the CPTC Bookstore:

  • The student must be registered for class(es).
  • The confirmed class schedule must be brought to the Bookstore to ensure the correct books are purchased.
  • Picture ID must be presented
  • Payment must be made at the time of purchase unless financial aid is available for books. Financial aid may be used beginning the first day of the term until the advertised last day to purchase on financial aid.
  • To defer book fees, the student must have approved financial aid on file. No cash will be refunded in the Bookstore to students purchasing books through financial aid arrangements.
  • The student must sign the invoice showing acceptance of books purchased and the liability for the books, should financial aid be later reduced.

Note: Students are required to attend class(es) to qualify to have books purchased through financial aid arrangements. Students receiving books with financial aid will be liable for Bookstore charges if their financial aid is reduced as a result of dropping classes.
