Textbooks and course materials

Detailed lists of required and recommended course materials are available from the MCC bookstores.

You may be able to charge books and supplies on your account before classes begin if you agreed to the financial aid payment agreement (during the enrollment process) and you have financial aid disbursed to your account that exceeds the cost of your tuition and fees. Bookstore purchases may include used and rental books. Vouchers for financial aid begin 10 days before classes start through the 50% refund period of the start of the semester. You may opt out of having a bookstore credit by not agreeing to the financial aid payment agreement, however, this will not allow you to receive any applicable refund check faster.
