Textbooks

The required textbooks for each CCO course are listed with the course description.   We recommend you purchase your textbooks after the dates shown below. If you purchase your books too early and there is a change in the required book list, we cannot guarantee repurchase of your texts.

  • For spring semester courses, do not purchase books before December 1.
  • For summer courses, do not purchase books before April 15.
  • For fall semester courses, do not purchase books before July 15.

If you purchase your textbook from UNC Student Stores be sure to purchase the textbooks from the 990 or 994 section of the course to ensure you obtain the correct materials.  We cannot guarantee that UNC Student Stores carries required textbooks for all courses.

When ordering textbooks from outside sources, you are responsible for purchasing the correct edition and any other associated materials.
